Oftels July Broadband ADSL Factsheet

Posted: 07th Jul, 2003 By: MarkJ
UK telecoms regulator Oftel has published the July 2003 issue of its broadband ADSL factsheet. Sadly Oftel has messed up the format in a rather usual way, thus making the statistics extremely unreliable.

Due to this problem we've opted to leave out the statistics until such a time as the regulator can fix the page:

Developments

One million Broadband Connections: BT has hit its magic milestone of one million wholesale broadband connections. The target for summer 2003 was set back in February last year when BT had just 145,000 connections.

Marking today's achievement, BT has also announced it is to reduce every trigger level by 50 registrations for exchanges that have not been upgraded to ADSL. The move means that 69 exchanges will now automatically pass their threshold, putting them in line to be converted to broadband.

Broadband extended reach: In March, BT announced it was testing the provision of ADSL broadband services over slightly greater distances from the exchange than at present. BT Wholesale now plans to expand the pilot by enabling service providers to provide the service to end-users. The pilot will begin in July and will run for up to three months with a maximum of 1,000 ‘long lines’ connected between 55dB and 60dB. A full launch date is yet to be confirmed but is expected around September or October.
