New ISPreview Article - Entanet Interview

Posted: 05th Nov, 2007 By: MarkJ
Entanet is a pretty big name in the UK ISP market and were recently chosen as the only non-BT operator to take part in BT's initial trials of up to 24Mbps broadband ADSL2+ technology.

Naturally we wanted to know their thoughts on that and a number of other issues, such as next-generation networks and the BBC iPlayer/P2P usage debate. To that end we were able to secure a short but insightful little interview with Entanet International's COO, James Blessing:

4. Fibre (FTTx) broadband technology has been a popular talking point of 2007, with many claiming that the UK risks falling behind other countries unless we replace our ageing copper wire based networks to keep up with global competition and bandwidth requirements.

BT has naturally expressed concern over the cost and is continuing its focus on existing infrastructure up to ADSL2+, though they do have some limited fibre trials. What do you think should happen?


Entanet: We would like to see ADSL2+ rolled out nationally BUT for Greenfield sites the default option should become FTTP. Once ADSL2+ has been rolled out completely there should be a planned upgrade to FTTK and the next generation of VDSL.

Saying all this is good, but for it to work BT/Ofcom need to re-evaluate how costs are apportioned and ROI calculated. Even with the recent reduction in the bandwidth costs on IPStream it still costs me (as an ISP) 30 times more to move data from the end user to my network as it does to get the same data to Australia.
