Plusnet starts trial of new broadband network
Plusnet has announced plans to start trialling its new broadband network, which it hopes will eventually be able to replace its existing infrastructure.

At present, the internet service provider's customers use either the 1Gbps 21st century network (21CN), its first 20th century network (20CN) for some Madasafish users and a second 20CN for remaining subscribers.

Over the next six weeks, Plusnet - which was ranked number one for consumer customer service at this year's Internet Service Providers' Awards - will move a small number of home broadband connections on to the new network.

It is expected that all 20CN customers will be migrated to the new infrastructure within four months, while the transfer of 21CN subscribers will take place once the trial period has come to an end.

"We will try and ensure a minimum impact on customers during this work, however some customers may be disconnected briefly as part of the move," said Plusnet's Dave Tomlinson.
