Global Crossing Gets Behind Entanets 24Mbps Broadband

Posted: 22nd Aug, 2008 By: MarkJ
Global Crossing, a global IP solutions provider, has announced its support for Entanet's recently launched 'up to' 24Mbps (ADSL2+) Wholesale Broadband Connect (WBC) product, which is distributed to consumers through several UK vISPs (List).

The group will provide core network connectivity from Entanet's central network nodes to British Telecom's (BT) WBC aggregation points in London and around the U.K, which could bring a number of benefits to customers:

"In what is a strategically important move for the company, we have made a significant investment in our own network, allowing us to take WBC," said Entanet's chief technical officer, Steve Lalonde. "As part of our 21CN infrastructure development, a key goal was to improve delivery, enabling channel customers to offer more stable and potentially faster ADSL2+ broadband, as well as broader Quality of Service options for those end-users looking to prioritise traffic."

Several other unbundled (LLU) ISPs in the UK are already offering faster broadband services based off ADSL2+ technology (e.g. O2, Sky Broadband etc.), though Entanet is presently in the lead when it comes to BT based ADSL2+ products.

In addition, BT recently chose to delay the rollout of its WBC exchange upgrades (here), which could be seen as a mixed blessing for Entanet. On the one hand rivals are likely to delay their launch; while on the other Entanet could suffer as a result of the initially limited coverage.
