UK Online Launches 22Mbps ADSL2+

Posted: 09th Nov, 2005 By: MarkJ
ISP UK Online has today launched the first ‘national’ ("most urban areas") unlimited broadband ADSL2+ service at up to 22Mbps for £29.99 per month:

Chris Stening, General Manager at UK Online, commented, “After extensive testing on our network, and customer trials, we are delighted to be launching the first ADSL2+-based broadband available nationally. While some customers will get 22Mb or even more, up to 24Mb, the quality of their phone line and distance from the exchange will dictate their maximum speed. Which is why we give customers a pragmatic estimate of the speed their line will support before they sign up.”

David Cartwright, a 24-year-old Mancunian, has been trialing UK Online’s ADSL2+ broadband for over a month, and affirms that his trial has “revolutionised the way I use the Internet all over again (which I couldn’t have imagined happening before I started the trial). 8Mb seemed blisteringly fast when I first got it, but the upgrade to my 20Mb broadband means I can watch streaming media whilst downloading, at the same time as my housemate is playing online games, without it slowing down.”

UK Online Broadband is available to more than 4.4million homes, and has announced that it will be extending its coverage to reach a total of 5.8million homes over the next 12 months – consumers can find out what speed their line will support at http://www.ukonline.net .


Suffice to say that we have some strong doubts about using the word ‘unlimited’ alongside such a service, but only time will tell.
