Free managed WAN internet connectivity remains a long way off, according to one expert.

Businesses around the world would appreciate access to managed WAN services free of charge but the likelihood of such a situation emerging in the near future is slim indeed, Steve Broadhead from Broadband-Testing Labs maintains.

He told ComputerWeekly recently he recalled IT experts stating with confidence that free managed WAN would be widespread before the end 1998 before noting the claim still does not apply a decade on. Mr Broadhead went on to suggest that rather than relying on the supply of managed WAN free of charge, businesses are looking for services which make full use of the broadband width available to them.

Meanwhile, it was recently announced that the North American telecoms giant Nortel is to supply the London Olympics in 2012 with the latest managed WAN technology available.
