Madasafish Hops On 8Mbps Trial
By: MarkJ - 09 March, 2005 (8:58 AM)

UK ISP Madasafish has joined others, such as BT Retail (Yahoo! etc.), in signing up to be a part of the operator’s 8Mbps broadband ADSL trials:

Madasafish has announced that it will start trialling 8Mbps broadband from April. The testing of super-fast broadband services is expected to lead to a wider-scale trial during the summer and an eventual full launch later in the year.

The decision to trial such high-speed services is a result of customers’ increasing use of bandwidth-hungry applications such as video-on-demand and streaming technologies.

Matthew Henton, Head of Marketing for Madasafish, said: “Our customers are already benefiting from our new 2Mbps access speeds. However, as the demand for better applications with more content continues, we must remain at the forefront of technical innovation in broadband services.

The trials will start in April and are expected to last approximately 10 weeks. Last month Madasafish introduced a new 2Mbps broadband service for just £17.99 a month, including a free modem, free connection and two months free.

Still no word on the kind of pricing we can expect to see, although some may adopt the 'usage based - not speed based' model, which would make it quite cheap.
