Trial for new ADSL link


BTopenworld, BT's mass market internet business, is about to trial an upgraded version of ADSL that will let more of us connect to high speed broadband internet.

The trial begins on June 25 in preparation for a full launch later this summer.

Initially, the new extended reach ADSL will be available on BTopenworld's home500 and business500 products. Plans are also in hand to trial and launch, later in the year, an extended version of the business500plus product which can support up to four users, and more using a local area network via an ethernet connection.

Ben Andradi, BTopenworld president, said: 'This is great news for people who want a high speed internet connection but who currently live or work just beyond the present range of BTopenworld's broadband services.'
