Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

BT Wholesale has set pre-registration trigger levels for a further 58 telephone exchanges, it announced today.

In total, 653 exchanges now have a trigger level which, if converted into firm orders, will result in BT Wholesale concerting the exchange to DSL.

The trigger levels set for those exchanges announced today range from between 300 and 550.

Since the broadband registration scheme was launched at the beginning of July more than 100,000 individual lines have been registered via service providers.

Todmorden in West Yorkshire became the first exchange in the country to hit its trigger level. For the exchange to be converted to DSL ISPs are now working to turn those expressions of interest into firm orders.

In a statement Bruce Stanford of BT Wholesale said that in the last few weeks demand levels have been triggered at exchanges in Yorkshire, Buckinghamshire and on Merseyside.

"In other areas the level of interest is growing rapidly and we expect demand to hit target levels for providing ADSL broadband in many locations including the north of Scotland and the Welsh valleys in the coming weeks as awareness of the benefits of broadband grows." ®
