NTL trials 100MB service

Wireless home

What speed is your net connection? For most people, it’s still 1MB or 2MB, with the promise of 8MB+ for many of us in the coming year. Well, if that brings a smile to your face, you might be interested to know that NTL will soon be trialling a 100MB service.

The trial will use the NTL network in conjunction with BitTorrent’s P2P client and CacheLogic’s P2P content caching and will evaluate ultra high-speed, legal video downloads of popular movies and TV shows in the UK. The download speeds proposed should facilitate multiple HDTV streams throughout the home and of course, super-fast web surfing.

It all seems like the start of genuine "on demand" entertainment down the line. Get saving up for that media box!
