BT Expands SDSL To 300 Exchanges

Posted: 02nd Jul, 2004 By: MarkJ
BT Wholesale is preparing to expand the coverage of its SDSL (symmetric - same speed both ways) business broadband services from 150 exchanges to a whopping 300!:

BT TO DOUBLE COVERAGE FOOTPRINT FOR SDSL

The latest phase of rollout will bring the number of exchanges providing SDSL to 300. As well as widening SDSL availability in areas which were included in the first phases of rollout, the move will bring a wider range of business class broadband services to additional new areas including parts of the M3/M4 corridor, Cheshire, Cardiff, North East England, Aberdeen and Exeter.

The first 34 of theses exchanges will have SDSL service by the end of July, another 34 will have service by the end of November 2004 and SDSL switch on dates for the remaining 82 will be announced by the end of September 2004.

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 and teleworkers who require business-class connectivity to their service provider for applications such as fast file transfer and web hosting.

Bruce Stanford, BT Wholesale products director, said: “Service provider customers have told us where they have demand for symmetric broadband services from their customers. Together with our own market analysis, this feedback has helped shape the next stage of rollout with 150 more exchanges doubling the number of exchanges providing SDSL.

“This will open up opportunities for service providers to attract new customers and give wider geographic coverage to existing customers.
”

BT Wholesale launched its SDSL services in September 2003 from 100 exchanges serving metropolitan areas in London, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Yorkshire, the West Midlands and Scotland. Coverage was extended in January 2004 to a further 50 locations in Greater London and the West Midlands.

This latest phase of SDSL rollout will double the number of exchanges offering SDSL and follows further consultation with service providers to identify the areas where they have strongest demand from their business customers.
