Bulldog preps ADSL2+ launch

That's it

Boost IT visibility and business value

Bulldog - owned by telco Cable & Wireless - is due to introduce faster speeds for its broadband punters from next month as it begins to introduce ADSL2+ technology.

The local loop unbundling (LLU) ISP - which is facing an official investigation by Ofcom after the watchdog received hundreds of complaints from customers over the summer - is planning to upgrade all its exchanges by the end of the year.

It means that Bulldog users should be able to experience speeds of up to 24 meg, although that depends on line quality. In reality, users can expect to see their service ramped up to around 20 meg.

Earlier this week upstart ISP "Be" announced its 24 meg service was now available in parts of London. Today Be announced that it has increased the upload speed of its service to to 1.3 meg after feedback from members.

"This is up to five times faster than other broadband providers," said Be.®
