UK company, Demon Internet Ltd says it has grabbed the last DS3 45Mbps segment on the TAT-12 link under the Atlantic to provide its subscribers with the equivalent of 30 T1 links. The link will cost Demon the British pound equivalent of about $23m over three years in rent from British Telecommunications Plc, which is part of the consortium that owns it along with AT&T Corp and MCI Communications Corp among a host of others. Demon telecommunications manager Mandy Antoinette says if the company had not made the move now, it would have had to wait until TAT-13 – the cable that will provide the return link of the TAT-12-TAT- 13 transatlantic loop comes on line in October. The link will connect Demon’s London facility at Telehouse Europe with those of Telehouse New York. Demon says the move will help resolve recent problems where customers were unable to get a dial tone from its bank of 2,500 modems in London. The company claims the line gives Demon more bandwidth than all the other UK service providers put together, and that the company has added more subscribers since February 1 than Easynet Group Plc’s entire base. The total is now around 60,000. Demon already has two T1 links to Washington, and a 2Mbps link to Amsterdam. In June it will have a 2Mbps link to Paris once Telehouse Paris is established there.
