bet project

Have heard that 'bet project'?? is something the Scots can get but not widely publicised in the deep south. Evidently it requires at least 17 signatories to get things moving - anyone any idea what this is all about?

BET - Broadband Extension Technology - increases the range of ADSL by sitting some hardware out in the field part way along the line. Uses I think SDSL to talk to the field kit which is effectively a mini DSLAM. Provides 1M link or 2M with two lines.

it's a trial at the moment I think.

It got a big mention when the head of BT managed to get a BET line for himself in his lovely little Oxfordshire village where the rest of his neighbours can't get broadband at all, and he got BT to pay for it as a perk.

Isn't there a big setup cost in the region of £1000 though?

it isn't cheap, a rack of kit in the exchange and the always sub-optimal field mounted electronics. I think you're about right at a grand.

How many CEO's of firms even none Telecom's ones have the firm install a private leased line, the cost of which far exceeds BET.

BTW that area now has FTTH via another provider, at a cost per home well above BET, and with a 25GB monthly usage limit

See Scotnet for more information - they are one ISP offering the service, and not just in Scotland despite the name!
