SANS - Survey on application security programs

Telewest has brought forward trials of a new self-installation wireless connection that gives its punters the freedom to get broadband anywhere in their home.

Around 500 existing Telewest digital TV punters in the North West region are being recruited to take part in the pilot.

The kit behind the trial lets punters access their blueyonder broadband service via a wireless access point and the cable modems embedded in their digital set-top box.

The self-install pack pack includes a pre-configured Netgear wireless access point and enables a connection for both Telewest's blueyonder 512kbp/s
and 1Mbp/s broadband services.

Pricing details have yet to be announced.

If successful, then a full commercial roll-out of the self-install wireless connection could be pencilled in for the summer.

In January, Telewest unveiled a wires-based self-install product for its broadband service that makes use of cable modems embedded in its digital TV set-top boxes. ®
