Fibernet Takes DSL to Liverpool
BASINGSTOKE, U.K. -- Fibernet Group plc (LSE:FIB), the communications solutions company, today announced plans to include Liverpool in its national rollout of Symmetric DSL (SDSL) services. The 'Liverpool Broadband initiative' targets a number of exchanges throughout the city and will create a more competitive local Broadband market, providing businesses with access to fast and reliable leased line replacement services at an affordable price.
Having already invested heavily in bringing data centre class network services to the city of Liverpool, Fibernet is now working closely with Broadband consultancy IDEAe to extend its services to the local business community. By pro-actively assessing and capturing demand, the initiative is well placed to deliver next generation broadband products across Merseyside, where, through an innovative cluster-based deployment, 'stronger' exchanges are able to subsidise 'weaker' ones.
Commenting on the scheme, Charles McGregor, Chief Executive of Fibernet said, "Businesses are rightly beginning to demand that they are not dis-advantaged by lack of service to the city. The launch of this new SDSL initiative has the potential to deliver enormous benefits to businesses in Liverpool. In addition, the competitive pricing structure we have constructed will bring these services within reach of the vast majority of small and medium-sized enterprises. I am confident that Liverpool city's businesses will welcome the opportunity to make a real difference to their bottom line."
