Jazztel boosting ADSL speeds to 7Mbps at end of October

30 Sep 2008

According to Spanish news source Cinco Dias, broadband provider Jazztel is to increase its ADSL download speeds from 3Mbps to 7Mbps. The increased speeds will be available from 28 October and existing customers will be upgraded automatically while the cost of the service remains the same; for those subscribers who are outside areas where higher speeds can be received due to poor quality lines or distance from exchanges Jazztel is set to reduce the cost of its current 3Mbps offering. Upload speeds are also to be increased, rising from 320kbps to 640kbps. The move comes as Jazztel looks to increase its ADSL subscriber base; according to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database the operator is targeting 5.5% market share by 2010, up from the 3.72% it had at the end of June 2008.
