Wales gets new business broadband proposition

Friday, August 27th 2010
ZyXEL and Carrier Wales have teamed up to offer speeds of up to 1Gb/s to businesses.
Wales gets new business broadband proposition
A new business broadband proposition capable of delivering download speeds of 1Gb/s is now available to companies across Wales.

The infrastructure, which is being delivered by internet service provider Carrier Wales thanks to developments offered by broadband access solutions provider ZyXEL Communications, makes use of Metro Switch technology.

This enables the system to interconnect with FibreSpeed, BT Openreach, NTL/TeleWest and other Next Generation Network (NGN) firms.

Businesses who sign up for the promotion will be able to take advantage of speeds from 10Mb/s to 1Gb/s.

David Brook, technical director of internet services at Carrier Wales, said ZyXEL's prior experience of working with NGNs meant that the project was completed and fully tested ahead of schedule.

He added: "ZyXEL is a true NGN partner."

Carrier Wales is not the only company looking to increase Welsh business broadband speeds.

BT recently announced it will roll out its 21st Century Network - offering up to 20Mb/s broadband - to 68,000 properties across the country by spring 2011.
