Fibernet is to roll-out SDSL services in Scotland to offer businesses a a super-fast 2Mb broadband service.

The wholesale operator, which provides services over unbundled lines, has signed up Scotland On Line as its first ISP to offer SDSL to Scottish businesses.

The service will be available in Glasgow initially with Edinburgh set to follow shortly.

Other areas will be included in the roll-out once there is sufficient demand.

Said Richard Callison, Scotland On line's CEO: "What is particularly pleasing is that this is not some far-off prospect. Businesses want to be able to take advantage of the highest quality services now.

"In addition, the competitive pricing structure we have constructed will bring these services within reach of the vast majority of small and medium-sized enterprises," he said.

Mr Callison's reference to the availability of the service is, perhaps, a wee dig at the progress of dominant telco BT, which will begin trials of its SDSL service from next month.

A full commercial roll-out is not due until sometime next year.

Fibernet has been offering SDSL services to business consumers for almost a year now. ®
