Pipex Starts Broadband LLU Migration
By: MarkJ - 04 April, 2006 (9:51 AM)

Pipex, which has already invested in plans to unbundle (LLU) 100 exchanges, has confirmed that it intends to start migrating broadband customers onto the new platform sometime this month:

Wanadoo UK, for example, is already moving its broadband users onto LLU exchanges, but a number of connections are failing, leaving customers without broadband for weeks on end. Wanadoo's line on these snags is that LLU is a "new and complex technology" and faults happen from time to time.

The latest LLU update from Pipex comes as the ISP revealed that a jump in broadband customers last year helped increase revenues and pre-tax profit during 2005.

The Register notes that Pipex had 283,000 broadband customers at the end of 2005, a figure that now stands at 390,000 following increased growth and recent acquisitions (HomeCall etc.).
