Connection news

The Wembley City development in north London is so far ahead with its communications that broadband connection speeds of up to 1000Mb could one day be a possibility.

That is according to James Saunders, the managing director at property investors Quintain, who was speaking to the Wembley and Kingsbury Times.

Mr Saunders said that digital television and telephone services could now also be deployed via the 100Mb connection currently offered to residents in the brand new apartment blocks.

"People are using iPlayer a lot but this is very slow," he told the newspaper. "More Mb also makes the watching smoother so it is like watching TV rather than the internet and means more people can use the internet at the same time without it slowing down."

"We are five years ahead of the market here. We could even provide 1000Mb in the future if we need to."

Broadband users are charged £1 per half-hour on a pay-as-you-go basis for 100Mb services, while bundles of 8Mb, 16Mb and 32Mb are available for every day web surfing.
