UK City of Leeds to Deploy 100Mbps Fibre Optic Broadband Network

Posted: 25th Feb, 2010 By: MarkJ
fibre optic cableThe northern city of Leeds is set to become one of UK's fastest locations for business and financial institutions after expansion plans for a 100Mbps high speed fibre optic broadband network were revealed. Local telecommunications firm aql now aims to rollout connectivity throughout the city's business district.

Adam Beaumont, Managing director of aql, commented:

"This model allows many businesses to get a head start on their competitors, reaping the advantages of high-speed-working long before the delivery of the Digital Britain promise. Smart businesses already realise the advantages of not waiting for their mail to download or for a file to transfer."

The firm currently operates several 'exchange' sites around the UK, including a fibre network between Leeds and London. Aql have installed a local fibre from its Leeds sites into strategic points, such as multi-tenanted offices, which allows Leeds based businesses to access data and internet services at accessible and affordable speeds.

However aql's service is currently exclusive to The Calls area, birthplace of internet pioneers Freeserve. Since the trial there have been a growing number of businesses looking to install the high speed cables and gain the benefits. aql are now planning to expand their network into other areas of Leeds city centre thorough 2010.
