I found this in my monthly Pipex newsletter and thought it might be useful to some of you. I have highlighted the NI areas available in red.
I hope someone finds this useful........THE PIPEX HIGH SPEED BETA TRIAL
Following on from the successful Alpha Trial which occurred this summer, PIPEX will shortly be commencing the Beta Trial of high speed broadband services which may run at speeds up to 8Mb. This is scheduled to take place from 30th November 2005 until 30th March 2006.
With faster and faster broadband services becoming available, this is really a very exciting time for PIPEX customers. Most customers are currently on 1Mb or 2Mb services at the moment, but from next year PIPEX customers may be able to experience up to 4Mb, up to 8Mb or even up to an amazing 24Mb !
Interested? Then have a read about what the PIPEX High Speed Beta Trial could mean for you ... What are High Speed Broadband Services?
The majority of today's broadband services are called fixed rate services, for example 512Kb, 1Mb and 2Mb services, but the new services which are being trialled are rate adaptive services which mean that they maximise the potential of your telephone line, and run as fast as it can go at a particular point in time. The speed a line can run at will depend on lots of factors, but distance from the telephone exchange, the quality of the line and line conditions will play a big part. The first products to be trialled will be PIPEX Home Max and PIPEX Home Office Max. These are rate adaptive services which will run from 256Kb up to 8Mb downstream, and 64Kb up to 448Kb upstream.
Can I get on the High Speed Trial?
For some PIPEX customers there will definitely be an opportunity to participate in the High Speed Beta Trial. From 30th November 2005 the following 25 exchanges will be enabled for high speed broadband services, and over the course of the trial more will be added taking the total of enabled exchanges up to 53
Initial 25 enabled exchanges
For existing PIPEX customers on these enabled exchanges, those that qualify for the High Speed Beta Trial will be contacted with the details of the trial and invited to participate. As a trialist all you would need to do is use the service and feedback on your experiences – what the process of getting onto the service was like, whether the service was significantly faster, was it reliable and did it enable you or encourage you to do more things online e.g. downloading music, video etc?
