First e.SHDSL test loop

At over a mile of distance, we’re very pleased with the 3.5Mbps symmetric performance we’re seeing on this single pair test loop. With eight pair bonding (8×3.5, in this example), this means delivery of a 25Mbps symmetric link is possible at this sort of range. This very exciting technology uses “Ethernet in the First Mile” (EFM) technology to deliver speeds from 1.5Mbps (T1) to 45Mbps (T3) on one to eight copper wire pairs.

Symmetric products at T1 to T3 speeds are ideal for business customers seeking to extend their local area networks at Ethernet speeds, and for fast Internet performance both downstream and up.
