H20 Networks Welcomes Ofcoms Next-Gen Broadband Consultation

Posted: 25th Sep, 2008 By: MarkJ
H20 Networks, which is currently busy preparing to cover Bournemouth city with an 'up to' 100Mbps fibre optic network using the local system of underground sewers, has understandably given a warm welcome to Ofcom's recent next generation broadband consultation document.

H2O initially deployed high speed fibre optic networks to businesses, including universities and councils, using the UK sewer system as a duct to lay the fibre. The success of these deployments later resulted in Fibrecity, which will see high speed networks connecting entire towns and cities:

"We are leading the way where other, far bigger organisations have failed to deliver," said Elfed Thomas, CEO, H20 Networks. "It is clear that private sector funding of these next generation networks is imperative to ensure that the UK is brought swiftly into the 21st Century as more and more of our businesses and homes use media rich services including video and IPTV which require large bandwidth."

Work will start next month on the UK's first Fibrecity in Bournemouth which will see connectivity speeds of 100 Mbps to all homes and businesses in the area. A Fibrecity deployment in Dundee will follow early in 2009, with other towns and cities announced in due course.
