NewNet successfully test 40Meg bonded ADSL for launch in May 2008

Hot on the heels of NewNet’s 24Meg ADSL service in August 2007 with their expansion into Local Loop Unbundled (LLU) exchanges, a new super fast service has been successfully tested.

The new super fast ADSL has been designed to use two telephone lines to provide a seamless Internet service with downloads up to 40Meg.

The service bonds the lines together and uses a special router designed by ZyXEL Communications that was shipped to NewNet for the first trials in this country.

Lee Marsden, ZyXEL Communications Sales Director said: “ZyXEL is delighted to be working in partnership with NewNet, assisting their product development and helping them to open up new ADSL services on their LLU enabled exchanges.”

Following the successful testing of the service the launch will take place in May this year.

Peter Coates-Buglear, CEO, NewNet plc commented: “This service will be unique in it’s capability for ‘plug and play’ bonded service, no other units we looked at were this easy to use. We are pleased that several months of hard work and liaison with ZyXEL and other suppliers has resulted in a new service that we will roll out on our LLU enabled exchanges. The 40Meg service is yet another example of NewNet pushing the boundaries and setting new standards for service delivery.”
