Eclipse Helps Boost SDSL Rollout

Posted: 27th May, 2004 By: MarkJ
UK ISP Eclipse Internet has today issued a new press release aimed at promoting the providers role in helping to push BT's rollout of broadband SDSL services:

Eclipse Internet’s campaigning helps shape BT rollout of SDSL

Eclipse Internet, 27 May 2004: Award-winning broadband provider Eclipse Internet is assisting BT with its latest SDSL rollout initiative by providing a substantial list of pre-registrations that will help in deciding which exchanges are enabled during the next phase. BT Wholesale plans to increase availability of symmetric broadband. The next phase is expected to include up to 150 further exchanges and BT has asked service providers to indicate where they have customer demand. Through it’s ‘We Want Broadband’ campaign web site, Eclipse has been taking SDSL registrations of interest since January 2003. To date more than 4,500 business customers have registered an interest in SDSL with Eclipse. The company was the first ISP to offer online ordering for SDSL services to complement the registration scheme.

Peter Hancock, BT Wholesale head of broadband symmetric products said, “We have asked our service provider customers to tell us whereabouts in the UK they have strongest demand for SDSL. This initiative by Eclipse Internet is valuable to BT and will help us shape the next phase of our SDSL rollout.”

The ‘We Want Broadband’ campaign has been developed by Eclipse in response to requests from the business community and the general public. It is designed to gather information in terms of demand for all broadband technologies, provide information regarding the availability of broadband in specific areas, to encourage sponsors to increase the demand for broadband and to provide information on broadband technologies and the benefits they bring.

Jomie Carmichael, co-founder and director of Eclipse Internet, winner of the ISPAs Best Business Broadband Provider award in 2003 said of the SDSL campaigning, “Today there are many large-file users that can benefit from the use of SDSL over ADSL. SDSL (Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line) uses the same speed for both receiving and transmitting data and hence is much better suited to the transmission of large files. ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) on the other hand transmits at a much lower speed than it receives at and hence the transmission of large files is considerably slower.”

Anyone interesting in being included in the SDSL pre-registrations should visit Eclipse Internet’s campaign web site at: http://www.wewantbroadband.co.uk SDSL Broadband services can be ordered online at http://www.eclipsebroadband.com
