UK ISP TalkTalk Set to Launch FTTC Superfast Broadband for Businesses

Monday, Oct 22nd, 2012 (11:48 am) - Score 1,446

TalkTalk Business has today announced the forthcoming November 2012 launch of their new managed “SuperFast Broadband” service, which will make use of the latest Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) technology to offer download speeds of up to 80Mbps (Megabits per second) and uploads of up to 20Mbps to firms around the UK.

The provider claims that its new FTTC service will be made available via over 30,000 street cabinets that are connected through to its 2,600 enabled telephone exchanges around the United Kingdom (note: over 1,100 exchanges have already been enabled).

On top of that the ISP will also aim to launch an Ethernet over SuperFast Broadband variant of the service on or just after January 2013, which will aim to deliver “high speed” symmetrical services at a significantly lower price point than traditional Ethernet technologies. According to Comms Business, the first trials are expected to start “shortly“.

Lance Spencer, TTB’s Director of Connectivity, said:

The launch of SuperFast Broadband is a significant milestone for us in the development of both our Broadband and Ethernet families of Products. The addition of a cost effective and high speed fibrebased broadband proposition to the portfolio enables our partners to leverage our competitive advantage – the unrivalled reach of our network.

We will be continuing to increase our coverage throughout 2013 and Super Fast Broadband will be an important area of our on-going investment.”

As usual the ISP appears to be following the roll-out path of BTOpenreach, which intends to reach 66% of the UK by the end of 2014 (it’s currently available to only 40%+). Openreach owns and manages access to the underlying telecoms and FTTC network.

Customers are told to expect generous usage allowances, network prioritisation for data traffic and an improved 7 hour fix time.
