BT has finally rolled out its DSL trial in London, a service that will allow permanent 2Mbps access to the Internet.
Covering 20 telephone exchanges in the city, the trials provide permanent VPN (virtual private network) or Internet access at either 384Kbps or 2Mbps over the existing telephone service with a return speed of 256Kbps.
The service is targeted at small-to-medium sized companies that require remote access and Web hosting, and offers ISPs the opportunity to deliver a range of new network services including video on demand, fast Internet access and banking.
The trials are the first example of BT's Interactive Services Network and will run until March 1999.
