Entanet Celebrates Strong 24Mbps Broadband Launch
By: MarkJ - 22 July, 2008 (4:58 PM)

Entanet, a popular voice and data communications provider that supplies several UK ISPs with broadband services, has heralded the opening success of its recently launched 'up to' 24Mbps broadband ADSL2+ products (original news):

Entanet’s Marketing Manager, Darren Farnden, commented: “We expected the launch day to be very much an awareness raising event among partners, with our sales teams and marketing communications promoting the availability of Entanet 2Plus broadband.

However, we were delighted to see orders coming through immediately, with customers modifying their existing ADSL connection to ADSL2+. What’s more, some of these customers were even live on ADSL2+ within a couple of hours.
” (Modify orders are expected to typically complete in approximately 24 hours).

Entanet's 'up to' 24Mbps ADSL2+ based broadband services are available to consumers through the groups many vISPs (Full List), although some have yet to introduce the new products. Some non-Entanet supplied independent ISPs are expected to follow suit next month with the introduction of similar services:

"Taking WBC is a significant part of our strategy,” says Farnden “and puts us in an enviable position to launch both resale and wholesale ADSL2+ broadband to the market well ahead of CPs who are looking to offer services based on BT’s more restricted managed WBC platform.

The network operator claims that ISPs reliant upon BT’s Wholesale Broadband Managed Connect (WBMC) are likely to have to wait until 2009 for the full service to become available. Some ISPs may also find the additional investment required to be an obstacle, likewise for the initially limited coverage that could hamper wider uptake.
