Default SDSL upgrade

BT to massively expand SDSL

BT has said that 1,300 of its telephone exchanges around the UK will
support symmetric digital subscriber line within 12 months.

For many businesses SDSL is more suitable than asymmetric digital
subscriber line (ADSL) because it allows them to send data at the same
high speed as they receive it.

BT said it would have around 300 exchanges capable of supporting SDSL
by the end of March, and would upgrade a further 1,000 in two stages
from April.

Most of the new SDSL exchanges are in urban areas that serve large
numbers of businesses, although some serve remote areas with a large
cluster of businesses, such as business parks.

Other telecom suppliers are struggling to provide SDSL outside the
biggest cities. Bulldog, BT's main SDSL rival in London, has not yet
announced any plans to offer SDSL services outside London, despite its
acquisition by Cable & Wireless last year as part of C&W's DSL
expansion strategy.

I've seen that my local exchange (Kings Lynn) is to be SDSL capable within a
couple of months.
I'm on a bog-standard Pipex 512/256 ADSL presently and have been with Pipex
13 months.
I also live less than 400 metres from the local exchange.

What luxurious new pipe can i anticipate? :-)
Any ideas on SDSL costs and contracts?

Martin.

Certainly not cheap !!! It may be cheaper to look at more than one line and
use a bonded connection, whichever way you go, hope you've got bottomless
pockets ;-)

Maybe we can anticipate a price war with SDSL once it's established?


The problem with that, is that there is only one supplier of bullets,
and they are horribly expensive.
