Zen Internet to Offer 40Mb Fibre Broadband in UK

UK-based Internet service provider Zen Internet has announced plans to offer broadband connections of up to 40Mbps.

The Rochdale-based ISP is to offer fibre-optic broadband to both residential and business customers from September.

The company will provide users with broadband speeds ranging between 15 Mbps and 40 Mbps, with upload speeds of 2Mbps and 10Mbps.

The project is still very much in its infancy, with Zen currently running a trial of the fibre-optic service for its own employees and a select few customers.

Zen subscribers who would like to become a part of this commercial trial can email their name, address and telephone number to fibre@zen.co.uk.

The ISP has denied implementing of the Fair Usage Policy (FUP) to cap download limits on its new service.

The price of the service is yet to be announced, but is expected to be higher than for Zen's current offerings.
