Zen Internet has announced plans to trial 100Mb fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband technology.
The UK internet service provider will deliver fibre-optic lines direct to businesses and homes, delivering significantly faster download speeds than those offered by existing copper wire networks.
Zen is also aiming to provide 30Mb upload speeds via the new service, which will be tested until summer 2011.
FTTP pilots are set to be run in Milton Keynes, north London, Leytonstone, York and Chester South.
Andrew Saunders, Zen's Head of Product Management and Marketing, said super-fast fibre broadband can be the key enabling technology for "a whole range of business internet services".
He noted that FTTP broadband will allow companies to maximise the value of e-commerce, cloud computing, video conferencing, VoIP and remote working.
"The benefits of fibre broadband to businesses are clear and today Zen can already provide fibre broadband to many more businesses and homes than you may expect," Mr Saunders added.
