Zen Launch LLU Broadband Trial

Posted: 20th Oct, 2005 By: MarkJ
Zen Internet just became the latest in a flurry of ISP's to expand into the unbundled local loop (LLU) broadband market. The provider has begun a trial of the technology on its home Rochdale exchange, initially offering service speeds from 4 to 8Mbps:

In its 10th anniversary year, Zen is offering its own unbundled service, now that the local network has been made available to independent operators. The resulting broadband services from Zen will be faster and have improved contention rates.

Zen will begin placing orders this week to migrate the first customers to its own unbundled network. Throughout October, all Zen customers on the Rochdale exchange will be moved over from BT Wholesale provisioned services onto Zen’s network. Zen will be introducing 4Mbps and 8Mbps services as part of the trial, and will be looking to further exploit its own network to introduce new services in the near future. One such service could be ADSL2+ deployment enabling up to 24Mbps broadband on some lines.

Technical Services Director, Stuart Birchall, commented: “Our main objective is to provide the best possible network connectivity services for customers in terms of quality and performance. This market trial will enable us to fully investigate LLU and the potential for rolling out our own unbundled network in the future so that we can continue to provide high quality services to our customers.”

Customers will be notified when the switchover is scheduled to take place via e-mail, informing them of the service interruption, which should be no longer than 30 minutes and in most cases just five.

Managing Director and Zen Internet founder, Richard Tang, said: “ Zen launched ten years ago in Rochdale, and to be able to reward some of our most long standing customers with the exciting new services that unbundling the exchange presents is fantastic. Zen is driven by quality, and our independence allows us the freedom to provide the right solution for our customers. In deploying our own unbundled network we are better able to achieve this. We look forward to a successful trial.”
