Spitfire launches SDSL in London.
Voice and data solution provider Spitfire has launched an SDSL (Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line) service for customers in the Greater London and South East region, UK.
SDSL differs from the more widespread ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) by providing equal bandwidth for both upstream and downstream traffic to and from the local exchange and ISP, while with ADSL upstream bandwidth is normally substantially less (normally 256Kb/s).
The SDSL service, branded LLUStream, is provided in partnership with Internet provider Easynet's wholesale LLU programme (Local Loop Unbundling). According to the company, the service is available in three bandwidth speeds - 500Kb/s, 1Mb/s or 2Mb/s - and three contention ratios - 20:1, 5:1 and 1:1. The three bandwidth and three contention ratios can be mixed and matched with rental charges starting at GBP45 a month, the company claims.
