Karoo.co.uk doing a Blueyonder

ADSLGuide reports that Karoo is upgrading their users' download speed by 50%, which is rather reminiscent of Blueyonder a few months back.

Now that an ADSL ISP is upgrading, will PlusNet have a look at following suit?

Is costs such ISPs very little to perform this, as they own the equipment end-to-end.

Where as ISPs like PlusNet only own a small fraction of the equipment. The rest (including the wire to your house, exchange equipment, network to transmit data to ISP) is owned by BT.

As such, plusnet are at the mercy of a costs for each an every customer , which is £15. Thats over £1,150,000 for all the customers as reported in the Q3 results posted on the LSE website.

I too wish this would ahppen, but until BT produce a price for bulk regrading, there is only hope.

I know that Blueyonder as a cable company has got virtually nothing to do with BT and can do what it likes.

Are you basically saying that Karoo has its own phone lines and exchanges?

Karoo is independant of BT IIRC, and don't resell the BT WHolesale services. AKA, they own there network end-to-end.

They are Kingston communications, which is effectivly a seperate Telecoms provider in Hull.
