Surf Telecom Preps Optical Broadband

Posted: 24th Aug, 2004 By: MarkJ
Surf Telecom, a telecommunications provider in the South West of England and Wales, has announced a £2.13 million investment in its network. Much of the cash will go towards their new Optical Broadband service:

Work on Optical Broadband Service-enabling infrastructure from Nortel Networks* will start immediately with the aim of boosting capacity and providing carriers, mobile operators, systems integrators and large corporate and public sector customers with competitively priced, scalable bandwidth.

Steve Blew, Sales & Marketing Director for Surf Telecoms, says, “Steady growth in bandwidth demand from consumers and business plus the fact that the South West is a major conduit for data between the US and the UK means that we need the best possible technology and services to support regional customers as we move forward.”

The new network is set for completion in October and will link up with Surf’s existing infrastructure in South Wales, providing a reliable and sturdy network to accommodate further increases in demand.

Peter Newcombe, president, Optical Networks, Nortel Networks Europe, Middle East and Africa said, “With the ability to offer next generation broadband services like Ethernet, storage and managed wavelength services to its customers, Surf Telecoms is increasing its competitive stance in the UK market. Nortel Networks is working closely with Surf Telecoms to bring these services to market and, ultimately, grow their business.”

Welcoming the announcement, Fabian King, head of Regional ICT at the South West Regional Development Agency (SWERDA) said, "It is always encouraging to see large corporations based in South West England investing in our region with an eye to the future. Surf Telecoms should be congratulated for doing this and in particular for safeguarding our future by pioneering the development of advanced telecommunications in South West England. It is initiatives like this that underpin our future."
