Video Networks Touts 24Mbps ADSL2+

Posted: 02nd Sep, 2005 By: MarkJ
Video Networks (Homechoice) has confirmed its intention to shift onto ADSL2+ for the delivery of its digital TV, video-on-demand, broadband Internet and telephony service across London and Stevenage:

The move will make Homechoice the first UK operator to switch to ADSL2+ to deliver triple play services and is a significant step forward in the development of the Homechoice service.

ADSL2+ will enable Homechoice to increase the amount of bandwidth available to its customers. Following formal approval of the revised specification, Homechoice has completed its first tests, delivering Homechoice successfully over ADSL2+ on an unbundled line. Homechoice will now commence a technical pilot within the next month with ADSL2+ enabled services commercially launching later this year. Potential new services will include faster internet speeds of up to 24 Mbps.

Dean Hawkins, Chief Operating Officer, Homechoice said: “I am delighted to announce Homechoice’s plans to move to ADSL2+ and am very excited about the new range of products and services it will enable us to deliver in the future.

It is a key time for the business as we are making significant changes to our brand positioning and have recently launched new pricing and packaging – including an 8Mb broadband internet service.

The move to ADSL2+ will play a key part in Homechoice continuing to develop its service and stay ahead of its competitors.
”

Homechoice’s move to ADSL2+ is the second delivery enhancement made by the company in 2005 following its move to MPEG-4 advanced encoding for its broadcast channels, which has recently been completed.


We note that HomeChoice isn't specifically announcing a 24Mbps service, more promoting the fact that it could be possible in the future. The move follows similar news from both Be and UKOnline, with rumours also seeming to emanate from Bulldog too.

More details are expected as September rolls forward.
