Britain To Support ADSL2+ Standard

Posted: 20th Jan, 2005 By: MarkJ
The UK's Network Interconnect Consultative Committee (NICC) has finally agreed to support the newer broadband ADSL2+ (18Mbps) standard.

There had previously been conflicts with the existing VDSL standard. Thankfully ISP Bulldog Communications has discovered a way of getting the two technologies to run at the same time without interfering with each other:

Effectively this would allow for super-fast broadband internet access across multiple users within a household, cheap phone calls over VoIP, multichannel TV and video on demand, all to be delivered over the current BT network infrastructure.

France and Sweden already have similar technology, but only after they had banned another technology, VDSL. Britain too has VDSL but it has been reluctant to scrap it at the behest of several operators, as it allows them to connect to homes that are otherwise out of the existing reach of broadband.

The netimperative.com item means that super fast broadband could finally be a reality in the UK by the end of this year.
