Vodafone to enter fixed-line broadband fray
Vodafone has announced the signing of a deal with BT Wholesale that will allow the company to provide its mobile customers with fixed-line broadband services. The actual service is expected to launch by the end of this year. The press release giving full details can be read at Vodafone.com.
It appears Vodafone are not going down the LLU route, which will be expensive for any provider who wants to increase coverage beyond around 70% of households. The precise details of the deal are not known, but it looks like Vodafone are to use the standard BT Wholesale ADSL products with national coverage.
