Broadband company Be have just launched a new broadband package, and has become the UK's fastest broadband service available to home users. The service boasts the bandwidth to be able to stream high two definition video channels at the same time whilst browsing the web or making internet phone calls.
The Be service is three times faster than its main competitors, and will be more than double the speed of the service that NTL plans to launch before the end of the year. The service also offers an upload speed of 1.3 megabits a second, which is five times faster than its competitors.
Be have been trialling the service since September in London and has now made it available to the most of London, with exchanges throughout the UK being upgraded over the next year. Paul Smith, spokesman for Be said that that national rollout of the service would first occur in the major UK cities and that customers can find out if the service is available on their website. A BT line is needed for the service.
