Fluidata offers 200 Mbps service in areas with FTTC
Thursday 17 May 2012 12:47:22 by Andrew Ferguson

For business use where you require 1:1 contention, and a good SLA the traditional path has been an expensive leased line, or more recently an Ethernet service. Fluidata is launching its PureFluid PULSE service, that can bond three VDSL2 lines and offers 1:1 contention, 99.99% SLA and a separate DSL line or 3G connection for backup purposes.

Bonding three VDSL2 lines means that for those close to the cabinet download speeds of 200 Mbps are possible, and uploads of 60 Mbps are possible. Obviously not every business is within 100m of its street cabinet, but even out at 1km the 3x24 Mbps (72Mbps) downloads will be impressive, and as the upload does not degrade due to distance so quickly the majority will see uploads within the 40 Mbps to 60 Mbps range using bonding.

This is excellent news. Hopefully with more customers taking up offerings like this, the cost of leased lines will come down

If only I was in an FTTC area...

Wouldn't mind a higher contention bonded VDSL2 service, say 10:1 or 20:1.

Curious how they claim 1:1 contention when Openreach don't (AFAIK) have a 1:1 contention option available for them to use.

It seems to amalgamate their "Pulse" FTTC services that are 5:1 contention, so don't see how it can be 1:1 by bonding three of them.

oh that would be cool i could get 186/60 with that based on my current speed of 62/20 :)
