Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Oftel has published an update on local loop unbundling (LLU) providing a snapshot of the strides made over the last month or so.

The overview claims that BT has handed over the four trial sites to the operators (Battersea, Belfast, Leeds and Edinburgh)...says that 700 out of the 741 exchanges identified so far have been surveyed...and talks about "business as usual".

It also bangs on about ditching the "Bow Wave" process, has some blurb on distant co-location - oh and a bit about the investigations it's carrying out because operators keep complaining about BT.

And that's it really.

While officials at the Winged Watchdog's kennel pat themselves on the back for such sterling work, news has reached us from the Mediterranean that Cyprus is to get 5,000 ADSL lines by April courtesy of a deal between Alcatel and Cyprus' national telecommunications service provider, CYTA.

With a population of just 700,000, that means there will be one ADSL line per 140 inhabitants.

In the UK, the ratio is nearer 1,800 people per ADSL line.

Anyone for Ayia Napa? ®
