ZTE Corporation on Monday announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd to deploy fixed broadband devices.

Under the partnership, ZTE will deploy ultra high-speed Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL2+) and next-generation very-high-speed digital subscriber line (VDSL2) broadband devices across BSNL's network in 15 circles.

ADSL2+ extends the capability of basic ADSL by doubling the number of downstream bits. The data rates can be as high as 24 Mbit/s downstream and up to 1.4 Mbit/s upstream. VDSL2 is an access technology that exploits the existing infrastructure of copper wires to support the wide deployment of triple play services such as voice, video, data, high definition television and interactive gaming.

Not to mention rates of up to 100mbit/s down & 13mbit/s up.I have to wonder why they chose ZTE though.

I read somewhere that it can do up to 200mbit/s? I mean VDSL2 does it really?I think they are already buying modems and network equipments from them could be the reason :D

It *can*... if you are a few metres from the cabinet.

This is not, however, how most DSL networks are built, mostly because the terminating equipment is a bit too expensive to do that. In real life, speeds degrade pretty sharply and beyond about 2km you're at basically the same speed as ADSL2+ (if you're on good copper).

Those numbers are, however, theoretical.

Based on my experience with VDSL2 in NZ, I can only get less than 50mbit/s - I'm only around 300m away from my cabinet but I think the copper is, despite being reasonably well maintained, quite old and probably in need of replacement, since the numbers suggest I should be able to hit 100mbit/s at this distance.
I think they are already buying modems and network equipments from them could be the reason :D

BSNL uses Teracom in many places, but then again they have such a hodge-podge network covering such a large area they probably have all sorts of stuff all over the place.

u can at least hope to get 25mbit and more....enough for our speedy :turtle:BSNL as well India !!!
hope to see some decent speed increases soon.....

Just 25mbit/s on VDSL2?

@ BSNL
U still have the worst plans :)
Just wait. some new plans coming soon.. but not Good as beam

Well i took that figure from typical maximum speeds offered by various VDSL2 providers in the world. It may differ according to many variables and is most likely to suprise you pleasantly upwards and not downwards.

About BSNL they have to reinvent, they can't remain at the same state they were 7-8 yrs ago. And when it comes to fixed line internet BSNL is the God so there changes will have a cascading effect on others.
