BT Extends SDSL To 50 Exchanges
By: MarkJ - 05 December, 2003 (9:32 AM)

BT has once again extended its Symmetric DSL (SDSL - same speed both ways) broadband service to a further fifty exchanges:


BT today confirmed plans to extend the rollout of its wholesale SDSL products to a further 50 exchanges. SDSL gives the same rate of data transfer upstream as downstream. It is particularly suitable for end-users such as SMEs, people in remote offices or teleworkers who require business-class connectivity to their service provider for applications such as fast file transfer and web hosting.

BT Wholesale launched its SDSL services in September 2003 on 100 exchanges serving metropolitan areas in London, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Yorkshire, the West Midlands and Scotland. A further 50 locations have now been selected on the basis of demand, market analysis and feedback from service providers. Exchanges to be upgraded in this phase of rollout will be in Greater London and West Midlands. BT Wholesale is planning to enable these exchanges by the end of January 2004.

Bruce Stanford, director BT Wholesale products, said: "SDSL has proved particularly popular with SMEs who can gain real competitive advantage from using this broadband capability, in addition to the range of ADSL services that have been in the market for several years. This next phase of BT Wholesale's SDSL rollout has been designed to help service providers address market demand and to meet their customers' needs even more precisely."
