Plusnet launches commercial fibre optic broadband trial
The company is gearing up to launch its fibre broadband product later this year.Plusnet has launched the next stage of its fibre optic broadband trial.
Dave Tomlinson, a representative from the Yorkshire-based internet service provider, revealed the first phase of its fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) test is closing, with more than 600 customers already signed up to the product and over 100 waiting to receive it.
The company is eager to make its fibre broadband proposition fully available later in the year and is consequently keen to commence a commercial trial, which will allow it to prepare and ensure it has the correct training and processes in place.
Subscribers have been invited to register online to take part in the beta trial.
"We are very pleased at the overall performance of FTTC," Mr Tomlinson commented.
Earlier this month, Plusnet revealed the average download speed being received by customers signed up to test the product is around 30Mbps.
FTTC will be available to between 15 and 20 per cent of the country in the near future, it added.
