BBned, InterNLnet, SURFnet start VDSL pilot

Wednesday 11 April 2007 | 08:54 CET | News
Dutch network operator BBned, ISP InterNLnet and the higher education network SURFnet are starting a pilot of VDSL services. The broadband services will offer download speeds of up to 40 Mbps downstream and 10 Mbps upstream. The four-month pilot is planned for Diemen, Duivendrecht and Amsterdam Zuid-Oost, starting with several dozen users in Diemen. The service will be offered free to the first testers, in order to gain feedback about technical aspects and user experience. BBned will place its own equipment in street cabinets that are then connected to fibre-optics. BBned is so far the only network operator planning a VDSL trial alongside incumbent KPN, which is launching the technology as part of its IP network roll-out.
