      Easynet pushes boundaries from the last mile to the last yard with new FTTC

      Crucially for British businesses, fast, efficient networks are high on the UK Government’s agenda following its 50 million broadband boost in last month’s UK Government budget. Cloud Computing, flexible working and unified communications can only reach their full potential for businesses if they are driven by powerful networks. Recognising this, Easynet has launched a range of Fibre-To-The-Cabinet access products with broadband speeds similar to those on Local Area Networks, all of which can be installed within 20 working days.

      FTTC technology makes reliable, secure and cost-effective networks a reality for more UK businesses by shortening the distance between business premises and high-speed fibre connections. Easynet can now build new connections outside its extensive unbundled exchange (LLU) footprint. Easynet’s Business VDSL portfolio, with speeds of up to 80Mbps, will be available to around 30% of UK businesses initially, increasing to around 80% by 2014.

      Easynet has a history of network innovation, and helped shape today’s broadband as it pioneered Local Loop Unbundling (LLU). It has grown to deliver a suite of global network, hosting and cloud integration solutions such as Application Performance Management, which enables businesses to maximise network performance.

      All FTTC-based offerings will be supported by Easynet’s award-winning customer service, which comprises a UK-based contact centre, online support portal, and nationwide team of engineers. As a result, Easynet can offer the high level of support required by businesses for whom even a few hours of downtime can have serious implications on revenue.

      Easynet’s FTTC Products include:

      • VDSL Business: 40 Mbps downstream with 2 Mbps upstream
      • VDSL Business: 40 Mbps downstream with 10 Mbps upstream
      • VDSL Business: 80 Mbps downstream with 20 Mbps upstream



      Ivan Gunatilleke, Easynet’s UK managing director, said: “As more key systems live in the Cloud, there is a renewed focus on the importance of reliable, resilient and secure networks in the UK. With this in mind, our new fibre-to-the-cabinet products offer much faster access, placing speeds onto a par with company LAN speeds for the first time and making Cloud the simple option for UK business. This is backed up with Easynet’s outstanding customer service and flexible delivery, making it a powerful proposition for UK business”.

      Well if Easynet can offer it, then it has to become available soon for Sky Customers.

      Opens up a new catalogue of options.

      40/2 - 20
      40/10 - 25
      80/20 - 30

      Perhaps?

      We know pretty conclusively that the 80/20 is going to happen. Too many people verified it.

      The 40/10 would be an attractive offer to people though.

      Saying that Sky could drop the bombshell

      40/2 - 20
      40/10 - 20 (as a free upgrade)
      80/20 - 25

      He says hopefully.

      If they want to go head to head with the devil (BT) then this would be the best set of prices

      Re: Easynet pushes boundaries from the last mile to the last yard with new FTTC

      nah 30 is a little too much.. but 40/10 at 20 or free upgrade, I would start out with 40/2 1st, to test the waters, then jump on the 40/10 bandwagon at 20/free upgrade.

      40/10 at 25, i would probably atrt out with 40/2, then think long & hard at 40/10 at 25.
