LONDON -- Easynet Group Plc, the pan-European broadband networking company, has today signed a 3-year contract to provide wholesale broadband services to Onetel, Centrica’s telecommunications arm. Onetel will utilise Easynet’s local loop infrastructure to provide cost-effective next generation broadband services to its customer base.

Easynet’s LLUStream – the first viable LLU wholesale alternative to BT Wholesale -will enable Onetel to offer a wide range of broadband options across Easynet’s unbundled network in the UK. The services will be available to Onetel at a significant discount to BT Wholesale broadband services and enable them to offer 8Mb broadband to customers within LLU areas. It will also allow access to even faster speeds of up to 24Mbps when Easynet’s trials of ADSL2+ are complete later this year.

David Rowe, Chief Executive Officer, Easynet, said: “This is an important milestone for the company. Onetel is a key player in the U.K. telecommunications market and the selection of Easynet is an endorsement of our Local Loop strategy.”

Ian El-Mokadem, Managing Director, Onetel, commented: “The partnership with Easynet will allow us to deploy next generation broadband services and benefit from Local Loop Unbundling economics. The market is set to evolve rapidly and we wanted a partner that could demonstrate experience in the local loop, and a willingness to work in a true partnership.”
