Plusnet speeding towards faster broadband


Plusnet, the UK’s best value ISP, has today announced two trials to supply its customers with broadband speeds of up to 24Mb.

Plusnet will run a trial with Easynet to deliver speeds of up to 24Mb based on their Local Loop Unbundled network. Plusnet customers in selected areas are expected to be able to access the highest speeds available in the UK from December.

Earlier in the year, Plusnet took part in BT’s IPStream Max technical trials which offered speeds of up to 8Mb to residential and business customers. These trials have now developed further; Plusnet customers in 25 BT exchanges across Greater London, Strathclyde, South Glamorgan, Cornwall and Northern Ireland will be able to benefit from speeds of up to 8Mb from 30th November. Customers across the whole of the UK should be able to enjoy speeds up to 8Mb by spring 2006.

Neil Armstrong, Plusnet’s Head of Marketing said “We know that our customers are very keen to experience even faster broadband speeds. The trials with Easynet and BT mean we can offer even faster speeds at great value prices. Many of our customers will be getting an early Christmas present of a huge boost in speed.”

Plusnet broadband services at speeds of up to 8Mb are available from just £14.99 per month. Pricing and availability for speeds up to 24Mb will be available in the next few weeks.
