8Mbps broadband promised by Christmas


ISP Thus and BT are trialling a new broadband service that will offer 8Mbps connections straight to the home.

The first tests will begin in April and the company hopes to roll out the service nationwide by the end of the year. No details have yet been released on pricing, but Thus insisted that costs will only increase incrementally.

"Most homes currently have a maximum broadband connection speed of 1Mbps, but once subscribers can connect to more than 2Mbps it opens up a whole new world of possibilities, allowing users to download and stream applications with rich media content," said Nigel Stevens, product director at Thus.

An easier solution would be to remove BT from the UK, maybe dump them in the pacific ocean or something. Failing that we borrow cable from Sweden (closer than the U.S. would be cheaper :p :D) and have 26mb connections, or some of those lovely symmetric 1GB pipes if we're cheeky.

SDSL would be nice, however prices in the UK are rather high, they're high enough for crappy ADSL, let alone symmetric:

512Kbps £149/mo
1Mbps £250/mo
2Mbps £299/mo
then there's the £250 install fee on top of that.

Robbery :D
