Bulldog field tests ADSL2-plus for U.K.

Feb 01, 2006

Britain's Bulldog Communications is field testing a high-speed ADSL2-plus broadband system it hopes to launch commercially before the end of the quarter.

The tests that began in the fall are aimed at checking connectivity stability at high speeds and different line conditions and will also give Bulldog insight into how the customers taking part in the trial use the new capability.

Bulldog said Wednesday it was the first British provider to publicly announce a major field test of ADSL2-plus on a nationwide scale.

ADSL2-plus service is designed to provide DSL broadband capabilities over copper phone lines. Providers see it as a good way to market value-added content without major upgrades to the fixed-wire infrastructure.
