Boost IT visibility and business value

BT Wholesale has begun recruiting ISPs to take part in a trial for a new 2Mb ADSL service. The trial is to kick off on 29 November and is set to run for at least eight weeks. The BT IPStream 2000 product is due to be tested within BT during November before the introduction of a broader commercial trial.

BT reckons the "wires only" self-install product will provide an "attractive solution for the more demanding first time broadband user and address the needs of customers in the consumer market who may be looking to upgrade to a higher bandwidth product".

BT Wholesale announced back in April that it intended to pilot a 2Mb service in the autumn. At the time, the wholesale cost of the service was set at £38 a month, which suggests that end users could expect to pay somewhere between £50 and £60 a month, when the product becomes available commercially. ®
