Daisy Wholesale UK Join BT Pilot of 330Mbps FTTP On Demand Broadband

Saturday, August 25th, 2012 (2:04 am) - Score 1,376

Communications provider Daisy Wholesale has joined the first pilot of FTTP-On-Demand technology, which allows BT to deploy “ultra-fast330Mbps (Megabits) capable fibre optic broadband ISP speeds over their existing and slower FTTC lines (due to cover 66% of the UK by the end of 2014).

Currently only a tiny number of areas can access the Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) service, which runs a true fibre optic line all the way to your premises for stable speeds of up to 330Mbps (capacity allowing). The new on-demand solution aims to solve that problem by giving those with an FTTC connection the ability to upgrade to a “premium” FTTP service, although this will carry a sizeable installation cost and thus works out better as a business product.

Daisy Wholesale, like other ISPs, will be involved with the Pilot Phase One in High Wycombe, Bristol South, St Agnes and Edinburgh Waverley.

Craig Peterson, Daisy Wholesale’s Product Manager, said:

Our involvement in this trial puts us at the forefront of the development of ultra-fast fibre optic broadband in the UK and goes some way to bridging the gap between ADSL broadband and leased line/Ethernet connections.”

Pilot Phase One is expected to run until March 2013 before being extended (Pilot Phase Two) to a handful of additional telephone exchanges with faster upload speeds of 30Mbps (full details). Both pilots should come to an end in May 2013, which is when BTOpenreach intend to begin the products commercial launch (i.e. before the end of Spring 2013).
