Service provider Andrews & Arnold (AAISP) is happy with the initial results in its 80Mb fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) broadband tests.

According to the broadband provider, participants have received download speeds of between 57Mb and 79.7Mb, along with upload speeds of around 20Mbb, reports ISPreview.co.uk.

Adrian Kennard, Director at AAISP, said it seems the trial is "not going badly".

"The lines are syncing up at nice high rates, and the rates are correctly coming through to us," he stated.

"Seems a few minor teething troubles getting the profiles right in the middle somewhere - but this is a technical trial, so not at all surprising."

With FTTC broadband, service provider replace copper links between telephone exchanges and street cabinets with fibre-optic cable to achieve faster broadband speeds.
