Abstract
The introduction of asymmetric digital subscriber Line (ADSL) technology to drive forward the interactive broadband revolution is now well underway in the UK with over 600 exchanges equipped to date, covering over 40% of home s. ADSL is providing consumers with unprecedented high-speed access to the Internet, and has sufficient capacity to deliver video and high-speed data to the majority of homes in the UK. But ADSL is not the end of the story; d emand for bandwidth will continue to grow, and BT must develop the capabili ty to deliver bundled services which include simultaneous multi-channel vid eo to compete effectively in the future consumer market. For this reason, B T is developing the ability to exploit the existing access network to deliv er capacity far beyond ADSL using an exciting new technology called very-hi gh-speed digital subscriber line (VDSL).
