Portsmouth South is to benefit from broadband speeds up to 24Mbps from August following an announcement by NewNet of a launch of its new LLU service, 18 months ahead of the roll out of ADSL2+ by BT. The service is initially available in Portsmouth, near the home of NewNet, where it can connect directly to their 10 Gbps high speed UK network.
From just £11.49 per month, the service will offer customers up to 24Mbps download and 1Mbps upload speeds. As with ADSL in general, line speed will vary depending on line length and quality.
"We are rolling out in Portsmouth first as it is on our door step. Other areas will follow. We plan to cover as much of the country as possible - 50 exchanges over the next 2 years."Peter Coates-Buglear, NewNet’s Founder and CEO
