Mercury is set to roll out its radio network competition to BT?s last mile service next year.
This week the company has announced that the technical trials for its radio network have been completed and had very successful.
The trial, which was conducted with 22 firms in Reading, used radio in the place of underground cable links to connect users directly to Mercury?s national fibre network.
A Mercury said that although the service was technically based, the cost would prove very competitively based against BT?s last mile service. The system proved capable of handing voice, data, video conferencing and ISDN connections.
?There is no firm date set for when the last-mile service will be offered, but it will probably be some time next year,? she said.
