NTL Moots VDSL2 Broadband

Posted: 21st Feb, 2006 By: MarkJ
ADSLGuide has spotted an interesting article on IT Week, which reports that NTL has demonstrated a business broadband service using VDSL2 technology. BT is also known to be considering VSDL over ADSL2+ for future services:

NTL said VDSL2 should be able to achieve upstream speeds of 25Mbit/s and downstream speeds of 50Mbit/s. The demonstration we saw at NTL's London laboratories gave downstream speeds of 48Mbit/s and upstream speeds of 18Mbit/s with an Ericsson VDSL2 digital subscriber line access module (DSLAM) and a Broadcom VDSL2 modem.

NTL also announced a small-scale trial of the systems in Guildford, Hampshire. "The basic question is, can we deliver fibre-like capabilities using copper that are equivalent to those available from a leased-line portfolio?" commented Kevin Baughan, NTL's director of network strategy.


There's no guarantee that NTL's trials will come to anything, although clearly the cable giant intends to provide BT with some competition inside its own playground.

To date BT has yet to take an official line on either ADSL2+ or VSDL2 technology, although the pressure to do so has just grown.
