BT Investigates Extended Reach ADSL
By: MarkJ - 25 January, 2004 (9:56 AM)

ADSLGuide reports that BT has begun a number of new broadband ADSL technical evaluations, all of which are designed to look at additional ways of extending the technologies reach:

A combination of approaches are likely to be considered. These include: Looking at the performance of existing DSLAMs and how a rate adaptive service would perform with both the downstream and upstream varying in speed. Another option ls evaluating systems like Paradynes ReachDSL product, which on paper offers distances of 10km.

Sadly 'technical' trials often fail just as much as they are successful. It could be some months before we know if any of the tested ideas have been approved for an official public trial.
