Finally a service with both fast downstream and
upstream speeds! I have publically stated my opposition to providers calling their services "broadband" many times in the past... How can a service with anywhere upto 20+Mbps downstream be "broadband" when it providers still give pathetic upstream speeds such as 256Kbps and 384Kbops; it leaves the service as essentially one way.
Be*/o2 Broadband have bucked the market trend by realising that upstream speeds are just as important as downstream speeds for the modern internet, and always provided 1.3Mbps as standard, pushing their network on higher packages to speeds as high as 2.5Mbps using bleeding edge technologies to do so.
The new BT fibre-optic network is set to provide users with service with not only ultra-fast downstream speeds of upto 40Mbps, but also ultra-fast upstream speeds of upto 10Mbps. NOW YA TALKIN!!
And don't worry, it will be available from other providers too as BT Wholesale will be making it available as soon as possible.
I wonder what cable's response will be; given their track record, they will just offer a "wow" 1Gbps downstream service coupled with a lame 2Mbps upstream lol. DOCSIS cable is just shit lol.
Remember, the BT Infinity network is still being built, so it could potentially be a long time yet before we see it on the Wirral... but the foundations are now in place for a REAL broadband network!
