A number of Daisy Wholesale resellers are to embark on a technical trial of BT Wholesale's new faster fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) products as part of plans to double the download speed of its fibre-optic broadband service.
Daisy currently provides FTTC download speeds of up to 40Mb but is hoping that this could rise to 80Mb, with upload speeds of 20Mb in the near future.
"[We have] experienced high demand from our resellers to take part in the trial for these services," said Daisy Wholesale product manager Craig Peterson.
Although only available on a through a select number of exchanges to partners whose lines meet the trial criteria, Daisy said it was hoping to roll out a full service to other partners with existing Daisy Wholesale FTTC circuits later in the year.
"This is an opportunity for our partners to engage with their customer base in shaping the way a modern business can collaborate at high speed," Peterson explained.
"These trials will give partners and end users the opportunity to understand the benefits of superfast broadband in their business in advance of the next generation of FTTC products, which will offer even greater speeds for those served directly via the exchange," he added.
