Tiscali UK to invest 61m in LLU
By Tim Richardson
Published Wednesday 13th April 2005 15:16 GMT

Tiscali is to plough 90m (61m) into unbundled broadband services in
the UK over the next three years as part of a renewed effort to secure
a sizeable share of this ever-growing sector. The Italian-based ISP
plans to cherry-pick the most lucrative exchanges in the UK to develop
its "selective unbundled network".

Tiscali UK is currently installing its kit directly into 27 BT
exchanges as part of its first phase of local loop unbundling (LLU).
These exchanges, which service densely populated towns and cities,
should be ready to provide unbundled broadband services direct to
punters bypassing BT's network by the end of May.

In a statement today Tiscali said: "The UK is an extremely attractive
market, offering substantial growth opportunities which Tiscali plans
to seize through significant investments, spending around 90 million
over the next three years, on developing its selective unbundled
network."

While this means that Tiscali UK should be able to offer competitive
broadband services similar to the ones announced by another LLU ISP -
UK Online - which unveiled an entry-level service for under 10 a
month. The downside for punters, though, is the limited availability
of these services.

Overall, Tiscali said it plans to invest more than 300 million in its
core country operations - Italy, UK, The Netherlands, and Germany -
principally on developing and completing unbundled network
infrastructure.

The investment forms part of Tiscali's business plan until 2007 which
"accelerates growth in the four key countries - Italy, United Kingdom,
Netherlands and Germany."

Having flogged a string of non-core businesses and most recently its
French operation to Telecom Italia for 266m, Tiscali has now got
enough cash to pay off a loan due this summer and invest further in
its business.

Said the ISP in a statement: "The disposal of non core assets, the
capital increase in December 2004 and the sale of the French
subsidiary Liberty Surf Group gives Tiscali the necessary resources to
redeem the bonds due in July 2005 and to finance the projected growth
and investments in 2005."

It would help if they invested 50 pence in customer service, and
billing, first.


He's forgotten that they will be using BT's cables as well, so if you get
rid of BT who's going to maintain or fault on them???
