BT to trial ADSL 500Kbps on 10km lines.

Posted: 19th Apr, 2004 By: Anne
Today BT wholesale announced they were planning to trial ADSL on lines up to 10kms from the exchange. They plan to trial in the Milton Keynes area so anyone who has been unable to get ADSL in the 01908 code Milton Keynes area wishing to register.

Initially the trial will be centered on Milton Keynes, due to the fact that around 18% of people are out of reach of the existing services which extend to around 6km (more accurately a 60dB signal attenuation). The trial will have 1000 places, and those people in the Milton Keynes 01908 STD code area interested in taking part should visit here to register their interest.

Nick Hubbard, action group co-ordinator said: “We have hundreds of people desperate to get broadband who will be very eager to take part in the trial. Lack of broadband because of long lines is a very hot issue here in Milton Keynes and we’re very happy to be involved in this project which will not only solve some of the issues locally but for people with similar frustrations right across the country.”

John Best, chief executive of Milton Keynes Council said: “Twenty years ago Milton Keynes was at the leading edge of neighbourhood technology, with cable, community TV and high aspirations.

“Since then the city has developed dramatically but now faces new challenges that demand a new infrastructure. We are now looking forward to another 30 years of growth as a vibrant, competitive city , and we need to design neighbourhoods that will once again be at the leading edge. Extending the reach of broadband throughout the city is a priority for us and we’re delighted that BT has embarked upon this initiative. We look forward to working with BT and other broadband providers to make Milton Keynes a centre of excellence for broadband and new media technologies.”


This can only be good news for those wanting BB and unable due to line length. Service providers are being canvassed to see who is willing to provide the service to trial consumers. All providers taking part will be announced on 11th May 2004.
