BT announces next 500 exchanges for SDSL
Tuesday 01 February 2005 12:33:00 by Sebastien Lahtinen

BT has announced the next 500 exchanges which will be upgraded for symmetric SDSL services. At the end of last year, it said it was intending on rolling our SDSL to 1,000 new exchanged by the end of March 2006 with the first half of these being upgraded from April 2005.

SDSL has traditionally been used as a low cost replacement to leased lines for businesses and companies in Central London and other metropolitan areas have already been able to take advantage of these services. These next 500 exchanges have been chosen on the basis of feedback from BT customers looking at areas with high density of SMEs.

The second batch of exchanges are expected to be announced in August. Providers are encouraged to give feedback to BT on the demand they expect in exchanges which they would like to be unbundled by the end of June.
