BT is to trial a 2Mb DSL broadband service, BT IPStream Home 2000, in the autumn. At the moment, the wholesale cost of the service has been set at Â£38 a month, which suggests that end users could expect to pay somewhere between Â£50 and Â£60 a month, if the product becomes available commercially.
BT is also planning a 250k product as an entry-level service. Trials are expected to begin in June. At Â£12.25 a month, the wholesale cost of the 250k service is less than a quid cheaper than the wholesale cost of BT's 500k service. A couple of ISPs, which are currently working their way through BT's announcement, said they thought the wholesale price of the 250k service was expensive.
