Bulldog launches London broadband service

Telecom service provider Bulldog has launched a 4Mbps broadband service for central London priced at £30 a month.

Telecom service provider Bulldog has launched a 4Mbps broadband service for central London priced at £30 a month.

 

The Bulldog 4 service is four-times more powerful than the 1Mbps service from BT's Yahoo! broadband service, which also costs £30. A 512kbps BT Broadband service costs £25.

 

Bulldog, which was acquired by Cable & Wireless in June, is offering its service through its own exchange equipment after taking advantage of the unbundling of the local loop by BT to provide a rival broadband service.

 

While users downloading data will get the maximum 4Mbps, the maximum speed they can send data at will be 400kbps, which is still faster than all the ADSL offerings from BT.

 

Firms with multiple users on shared ADSL lines and users regularly sending large files need higher “upload” speeds so they can consider broadband over more expensive leased lines that offer the same data speeds in each direction.

 

Users signing up for Bulldog 4 before 31 July will get an introductory price of £20 a month for the first three months.

“Having our own infrastructure enables us to do this, unlike other providers who are restricted by BT’s wholesale offerings. Bypassing the BT network also means that we can also ensure a greater service quality for our customers,” said Richard Greco, Bulldog chief executive.

 

Exchanges where Bulldog 4 is available include: Bermondsey, Bishopgate, Canonbury, Clerkenwell, Covent Garden, Euston, Faraday, Fleet, Holborn, Westminster, Kings Cross and Shoreditch.
