BT's Public N.Ireland Wireless Service

Posted: 03rd Aug, 2004 By: MarkJ
Equipment vendor Alvarion has revealed that BT is preparing to launch a public broadband wireless service in Northern Ireland later this year:

BT has signed a £500,000 deal for Alvarion's 5.8GHz BreezeACCESS VL equipment, which will be used to provide broadband services to areas outside the reach of ADSL. "Northern Ireland is the first place to adopt radio [broadband]," BT press officer Ross Cook told ZDNet UK, "and a lot of people will be waiting to see how that goes."

The service is the result of a partnership with the Northern Ireland Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETI). "With 99.6 percent of the country to be reached by DSL, wireless is not currently feasible as a stand-alone product without partnership funding," said Cook. "However, it is part of our strategy for 100 percent UK broadband coverage by the end of 2005."


It’s reported that Alvarion should have WiMAX based 5.8GHz ready for next year. More @ ZDNet.
