Libera, a UK company aiming to reach 75% of the country’s business with wireless broadband, will shortly be offering a 36Mpbs service in London Docklands. The service goes live in July, and will be rolled out to Greater London by summer 2005. Subscribers can choose connectivity anywhere between 1 and 36Mpbs – making it the fastest in the world for the time being.Libera’s network is carried on the 28GHz band of the radio spectrum, one of the rare instances of that band being used.
Paul Momtahan, marketing director, emphasises the high tech nature of the network: “if they need more bandwidth we can turn it up, if they need less, we can turn it down”.
Libera are not commenting on the pricing of their service yet, but expect it to compare with business SDSL connections.
