C&W buys Bulldog

If you knew LLU, like Bulldog knew LLU

Cat 5 cable

In Brief Cable & Wireless has bought Bulldog, the British ISP, for £18.6m.

Set up in 2000, Bulldog has carved out a broadband niche, often using its own equipment to act as principal supplier, rather than as a simple reseller for BT Wholesale. The firm has installed its own gear in 38 BT exchanges in central London, installed under local loop unbundling (LLU) rules.

Francesco Caio, C&W chief executive, said Bulldog has an experienced team specialising in LLU services and the acquisition will accelerate the firm's ability to deliver direct DSL connections. ®
