Bulldog Touts National ADSL2+ Trial
By: MarkJ - 01 February, 2006 (9:51 AM)

Bulldog has officially announced that it is to conduct a national ADSL2+ broadband trial, thus extending its smaller and more selective testing from September last year:

The aim of the extensive trial is to ensure the stability of the connection at higher speeds and to gain maximum performance under different line conditions. Ultimately, this stability is crucial to ensure customer satisfaction and provide a platform on which additional services could eventually be launched.

The trial is providing an opportunity for Bulldog to understand how its customers will use the faster access speeds, and establish if there are any issues with the equipment customers need to connect to the service. ADSL2+ represents a confluence of technologies and standards, and operates over existing copper lines, and Bulldog has worked to iron out any possible kinks prior to launching a commercial service.

Once all the data is evaluated, Bulldogs next generation high-speed service will offer substantially greater bandwidth and shorter download times for customers.

Bulldog is the first ISP to publicise such an extensive national ADSL2+ trials and is determined to deliver a superlative customer experience with the commercial launch of its product, both from a technical and customer experience perspective

Following a full evaluation of the initial trials, Bulldog hopes to launch the ADSL2+ service commercially by the end of Q1 2006.

Bulldog chief architect, Gavin Young said, As the web continues to evolve, we want to ensure that our broadband services meet the increasing needs of our customers. ADSL2+ represents the next evolution of broadband access, and this trial demonstrates our commitment to delivering a positive experience for customers looking to enhance their experience of the internet. ADSL2+ will also enable a new generation of internet services, and Bulldog will continue to innovate over 2006 to deliver these.

Clearly Bulldog has a lot of confidence in its initial testing; otherwise it wouldn't have targeted such an early launch date. We hope users will help to keep us informed about performance.
