O2 delays broadband again

Teething problems continue to dog O2 UK’s own-branded fixed line broadband service. The operator has been forced to delay the launch of its service once again, this time until October.

The news follows a previous delay back in May, when it emerged that the operator had pushed back the launch of its O2 branded broadband to September.

O2 got on the UK broadband bandwagon with the acquisition of ADSL provider Be for £50m, last summer.

Be is in the process of building its own national broadband network, and has rolled out to over 801 exchanges, giving its broadband network a population coverage of around 49 per cent, with 33,000 customers.

Be was one of the first UK broadband providers to deploy ADSL2+, which allows it to offer speeds of up to 24Mbps.
