A new telecommunications innovation could help broadband providers deliver faster download speeds to UK consumers, it has been claimed.

Canadian firm Genesis Technical Systems believes its hi-tech DSL Rings can allow internet service providers to improve their speed offering using existing copper cables.

The firm has claimed that its technology allows data to be transferred at up to 400Mb, even over long distances.

Genesis, which is relocating its UK operation to the University of Warwick Science Park's Venture Centre, has secured £120,000 in funding to further develop the solution.

Ian Mackenzie, Chairman of the British branch, commented: "Following recent successful demonstrations of Genesis' DSL Rings capabilities with two incumbent European telecoms providers, we want to accelerate product development."

He claimed the technology could give web users the option for super-fast broadband in rural, and urban, areas within the next couple of years.

Consumers and businesses in remote parts of the countryside are currently relying on the government to roll out 2Mb broadband nationwide by 2015.
