Bluwan could deliver fibre-through-the-air (FTTA) broadband services to UK homes and businesses by the end of 2011, it has been revealed.

ISPreview.co.uk reported that the firm's wireless-based broadband technology – which could potentially offer up to 100Mb downloads – is almost ready to go live.

The revolutionary FTTA solution will use line-of-sight technology, with a wireless signal delivered using a 360-degree antenna.

Speaking to the news provider, Shayan Sanyal, Bluwan's Chief Marketing Officer, told ISPreview.co.uk that trials are currently ongoing across Europe.

He added that the internet service provider is also in the process of signing up more trials around the globe.

"In terms of commercial feasibility, companies in this sector are aware that they need a solution to the current capacity issues they are facing," he stated.

"Whilst many are looking at ways in which to moderate it for now, i.e. traffic management, these aren't long term solutions."

Earlier this month, the European Parliament claimed that EU citizens should have free and open access to wireless broadband.
