CES 2009 - SharedBand finally goes wide

LAS VEGAS - The much-anticipated emergence of SharedBand on the U.S. scene may finally be happening. The U.K. company that partnered with BT on a successful broadband bonding service is at CES 2009 this week talking about its national U.S. rollout. SharedBand first arrived on U.S. shores last year riding a wave of hype, but it delayed its expansion and settled for a series of U.S. market trials in Washington and California instead of rushing full-force into a nationwide offering.

The vendor has partnered with Netgear to offer a $70 router to support its binding services, which are likely to be of interest to small and medium-sized businesses, as well as some residential consumers. Mushroom Networks is among other vendors that have supported broadband bonding, and 2009 could be a big year for the capability, as AT&T also is expected to pursue pair-bonding.
