Danes Invest In UK LLU Broadband

Posted: 28th Jul, 2004 By: MarkJ
Updata, a Danish broadband operator, is aiming to unbundle 100 local telephone exchanges in the UK by the end of 2004. Its goal is to target 'local authorities', especially rural ones, with broadband Internet access:

Updata has already unbundled the local loop (LLU) in other European countries, including Denmark. This is the process by which telecoms operators access the incumbent telco's network so they can provide services direct to homes and businesses. In September 2003, it unbundled its first exchanges in Dorset and as of today, it has installed its kit in eight BT telephone exchanges providing SDSL services to council offices and other public sector premises.

Thanks to deals with local authorities in Bedfordshire, Dorset, North Somerset and Pembrokeshire, Updata plans to have 100 exchanges unbundled by the end of the year, providing services over as many as 3,000 telephone lines.

Said Updata director Vic Baldorino: "There is no mystery surrounding LLU or its pricing. We can quote an affordable cost per exchange and per line on symmetrical services from 1-100MB. LLU allows new assets to be built and we're keen to unbundle in areas of the UK that other providers will be reticent to touch."


It's good to see a land-line based supplier targetting rural communities, the most remote of which can often only get hi-speed through satellite. More @ The Register.
