100Mbps Broadband a Reality by 2007?
Telewest is looking at technology which could eventually boost broadband speeds up to 100Mbps, the company announced today.
The cable company claims it will achieve this hundred-fold increase in broadband speeds, compared with the average connection today, thanks to its investment in Data Over Cable Service Interface Specifications (DOCSIS) standards.
Telewest is hoping to launch a service based on DOCSIS 3 middleware ? which will allow download speeds between 50Mbps and 100Mbps by the end of 2006.
In the meantime, the telco also announced that it has begun rolling out a 10Mbps broadband service in the UK. Initially only available in Scotland, the 10Mbps service should reach London at the beginning of next year with the rest of the country following over the next 12 months.
