Newnet have announced an expansion to its LLU network with 3 exchanges coming live over the next month, and a further 3 in development. Cosham has already been enabled, and Havant will come live this month with Gosport planned for early March. This adds to the existing, Fareham, Portsmouth Central and Portsmouth North that have already been enabled with Newnet LLU.
Newnet have plans to head further north for March, with Reading, Basingstoke and Bracknell expected to become live. One advantage of starting locally is the cost savings in connecting the exchanges back to Newnet as interconnects to backhaul the traffic to the Newnet network will be cheaper. This enables Newnet to provide a faster service to its customers, with less bottlenecks at the exchange.
Currently, Newnet provide up to 24Meg services from these exchanges to both Consumers and Businesses. For more information, and to check availability, see the Newnet website.
