Bulldog doubles broadband speeds

Sweet 16

Bulldog has cut the ribbon on a faster broadband service that provides speeds of up to 16 meg.

The local loop unbundling (LLU) operator - owned by Cable & Wireless (C&W) - says its decision to double the speed of its existing service makes use of ADSL2+ technology and provides upload speeds of 1 meg.

The ISP has two packages on offer - Anytime Plus which costs £15 a month and Unlimited Plus at £25 a month. A package aimed at small businesses will cost SMEs around £45 a month.

Bulldog's "DoubleSpeed broadband" is available across the operator's entire footprint of unbundled exchanges, currently available to about a third of UK homes and businesses.

By the end of September, the ISP should have its kit installed in some 800 BT exchanges, making its service available to half of UK homes and businesses. ®
