BT agrees broadband network deal with Alcatel-Lucent

Wednesday, May 5th 2010 by Cable.co.uk

Bundle provider BT has agreed a deal which will see it use an Alcatel-Lucent solution as part of a scheme to improve broadband speeds across the UK.

Broadband provider BT is to work with Alcatel-Lucent as it continues to roll out its 21st Century Network (21CN) service across the UK.

Under the terms of a five-year deal, the bundle provider will make use of Alcatel-Lucent's High Leverage Network services as it looks to speed up the delivery of improved broadband to the wider market.

The performance, capacity and bandwidth of BT's 21CN service will all be available for a broader customer base in the near future.

George Nazi, managing director of BT 21CN Core Covergence, said the rollout of the network service was "a huge transformational programme".

He added: "Alcatel-Lucent came up with an innovative solution that will help us keep 21CN at the forefront of innovation and radical change."

BT recently confirmed that over 250,000 homes and businesses in the east of England are set to gain access to the 21CN infrastructure by spring next year.
