Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Eclipse Internet has begun signing up businesses for an SDSL broadband trial. From today its broadband checker at eclipsebroadband will be able to check the availability of SDSL as well as ADSL.

The ISP has already received "quite a lot of interest" from businesses looking to take advantage of the SDSL service, which transfers data at the same speed in both directions.

And it claims the checker will also take pre-registrations from businesses that want broadband but which are currently located in non-SDSL-enabled areas. Prices for Eclipse's SDSL service are due to be published later today.

Initially, SDSL services will be available at 20 exchanges in London, but from December a further 30 exchanges in areas including Manchester and Yorkshire should also be able to provide SDSL.

Separately, broadband ISP, Nildram, offers the fastest ADSL in the UK, according to speed tests conducted by readers of ADSL Guide. The tests carried out by customers of the UK's leading broadband ISPs found that Nildram was quickest, closely followed by Zen Internet and Demon. ®
