Internet Security Threat Report 2014

BT is to trial a 2Mb DSL broadband service, BT IPStream Home 2000, in the autumn. At the moment, the wholesale cost of the service has been set at £38 a month, which suggests that end users could expect to pay somewhere between £50 and £60 a month, if the product becomes available commercially.

BT is also planning a 250k product as an entry-level service. Trials are expected to begin in June. At £12.25 a month, the wholesale cost of the 250k service is less than a quid cheaper than the wholesale cost of BT's 500k service. A couple of ISPs, which are currently working their way through BT's announcement, said they thought the wholesale price of the 250k service was expensive.

There are no details of full commercial roll-out for either services, as their launch is dependent on the success of the trials. ®
