BT's 1,000 Exchange SDSL Rollout

Posted: 25th Nov, 2004 By: MarkJ
BT has announced that, come April 2005, they will initiate plans to upgrade a further 1,000 exchanges with broadband SDSL. The process will take 12 months to complete:

The 1,000 exchanges to be earmarked for upgrade will be selected using feedback from BT Wholesale’s service provider customers as to where they have customer demand – and on the density of small and medium businesses (SMEs) in the exchange area.

Bruce Stanford, products director for BT Wholesale, said: “This is a significant step forward which will bring 512Kb/s SDSL within reach of more than two thirds of UK businesses. We believe the market for SDSL will grow as awareness increases and new applications are developed.

“The plans announced today will give service providers additional flexibility to widen their portfolio and will also give more certainty about the potential market which can be addressed when service providers develop new SDSL based products and services.”

The details of the 12 month upgrade programme will be revealed in two phases with the first 500 exchanges announced at the end of January and the next 500 in August 2005. Feedback received from service providers before the end of June 2005 on where they have customer demand for SDSL will be considered when confirming which areas will be included in the 1,000 exchange rollout.

Under the existing deployment plan BT Wholesale will have SDSL service available from 224 exchanges at the end of November 2004 rising to 300 by the end of March 2005.
