Spitfire’s VDSL Internet Service - Muswell Hill, Cardiff & Glasgow trial
What is VDSL?
Spitfire VDSL is exceptionally fast business broadband Internet which depending upon your
location should allow Internet bandwidth between 15Mb and 40Mb downstream and up to 2Mb or
How does VDSL work?
VDSL uses a fibre connection between your local BT exchange and your local BT node and a
copper connection from the node to your premises. By bringing fibre closer to you, the speed
which can be provided is increased over conventional ADSL but note that the actual connection
speed will be dependent upon the length and quality of this final copper link.
What does ‘trial’ mean?
Spitfire is one of a handful of ISP’s who have been chosen to trial VDSL by BT Wholesale.
The trial covers Muswell Hill in London, Whitchurch in Cardiff and Halfway in Glasgow and is open
for end-users in these areas from now until 30.11.09. For those taking part in the trial, this will
continue until early 2010 when depending upon the results, Spitfire will either give the end-user
the choice to continue with the fully launched product (at normal prices) or the choice to cease
or migrate to conventional ADSL.
The service should be reliable but being a trial and as with all our Internet Broadband
products we highly recommend that you have a back-up circuit in place. This costs from just
£15.00 per month for ADSL back-up. Please discuss this with your Account Manager or IT
Your feedback will be important to both Spitfire and BT Wholesale so we will ask you to complete
a short survey during the trial and we welcome all comments at any stage.
