Eclipse join 40meg FTTC broadband service providers
Eclipse Internet are the latest broadband provider to launch a range of broadband products based on the BT fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) technology that has so far seen a slow take up with service providers. This isn't too much of a surprise as not many exchanges are actually enabled for the fibre service which sees fibre run to street-side cabinets. There will likely be a spurt of take up once availability has increased.
The Eclipse products are set to go live on the 12th of April and will give users a maximum speed of 40meg, but with a guaranteed throughput of 12meg. Two products will be available - Eclipse Fibre and Eclipse Fibre Pro which see a difference in the usage allowance and the upload speed. Eclipse Fibre comes with 2meg upload and a 50GB usage allowance, Fibre Pro has a 10meg upload speed and a 60GB allowance. It's also worth noting that these broadband packages are aimed at the business user rather than home users.
