Latest ADSL News From Nildram

The BT trial of ADSL is apparently now underway. This trial was
unfortunately
severely restricted to only 5,000 consumers nationwide. Wholesale pricing
has
also been published, and for the basic service, which provides a 512kbps
download speed and 256kbps upload speed, with a contention ratio of 20:1
(i.e.
20 other users will be competing with you for that bandwidth), the pricing
works
out as follows:

Installation: 260 + VAT
Annual Rental: 1065 + VAT

In addition to these charges, any ISP providing the service will have to pay
for
a connection to BT to deliver the data inwards. At its cheapest, this will
work
out at an additional 50 per annum, and at its most expensive, 745 per
annum
(this all depends on volume). On top of that, we then have to deliver your
data
across the Internet and make a charge for that.

You can probably see from these figures that unless BT does some drastic
price
cutting, we are still a long way off from the 40/month figures that the
press
like to dream about. More like 150 - 200 a month, we suspect.

Nildram fully intends to offer this service just as soon as we are able.
However,
we don't expect the BT rollout to start until March 2000, and then it will
be a
fairly gradual process. After all, BT don't want to stop the tills ringing
from
the sound of all those dial-up call minutes that are being generated every
day
until they are really forced to do so, one way or the other.

More news as and when we have it!
