ISPreview are reporting that ISP Be, owned by O2, are inviting its users to trial a bonded ADSL2+ solution which will see users reaching speeds of up to 40Mbps. Due to the variable speed of ADSL based technologies, speed will be dependent on the distance from the exchange, but in most circumstances users can probably expect near double the current speed of their ADSL2+ line. Be will provide a suitable router and 2 additional telephone lines for the service. Details to sign up to the trial are as follows:
If the sound of getting up to 40meg excites you then here’s what you need to do:
- Contact Be on 0207 479 5029 by Friday 26 September 2008 at the latest to book your place on the trial.
- Once you’re confirmed on the trial we’ll even contact BT to order your 2 new telephone lines (incoming calls only) so you don’t have to.
- And finally meet us in a pub near our offices to get your new free router. Meeting venue and details will follow once you’ve contacted us to be part of the trial
For further information on this trial please contact Be by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Apart from the benefits of trialing the faster service for a month, users will also receive a month free broadband, and have the use of the two phone lines for a year (although inbound calls only).
