The Post Office Broadband Service?

Posted: 11th Aug, 2006 By: MarkJ
The Times newspaper reports that the Post Office is to build on its existing fixed-line telecoms product by launching a broadband service:

In the early days of its fixed-line service, launched last year, the Post Office, by signing- up a significant number of customers, seemed to have proved wrong critics who had said that the £15 million move was ill-judged and unrealistic. However, the group refuses to supply updated figures, leading analysts to question its success.

Ian Watt, senior analyst at Enders Analysis, said: “A move into broadband would make more sense than just offering telephony alone because it is extremely difficult in the long term now to proceed in the marketplace by providing just one fixed-line service.”

We'd be quite surprised if the PO were to launch a broadband service, especially in such a volatile market place; now is not the time for new entrants.

Interestingly UK-Bug has a response from the PO, which states that while broadband is being considered, no decision has yet been made.
