Timico and Plusnet start making 21CN moves
Timico, the communications provider behind the ISPs KeConnect and Twang.net, have today announced the completion of the install of their WBMC links into BT's 21CN network. The two 1Gbps connections will allow Timico to start providing the ADSL2+ products from BT's 21CN portfolio which give users a potential speed of up to 24Meg (Megabits per second), although this has a maximum speed of about 21Meg in practice. Timico will be looking to start trialing migrations to the new platform for those who are on a 21CN enabled exchange soon.
“As one of the early connectivity trialists for the BT 21CN, we are delighted that we have completed our pipe in such good time and are confident that soon our customers will be able to benefit from the Timico advanced telephony and IP services that we will be able to deliver via our super fast ADSL2+ broadband connection."Chris Tombs (Chief Executive), Timico Group
In other 21CN news, Plusnet released a progress report on their 21CN services last week via their community blog. They too have their backhauls installed and are currently progressing with trials of staff orders.
