BT’s broadband upgrade set to start


by David Allen

It is expected that the communications regulator, Ofcom, will finally be giving BT approval to begin the rollout of the new super fast fibre optic broadband network to around ten million households throughout the UK.

The £1.5 billion project has been the centre of much debate and negotiations over the past month, as Ofcom tries to lay out new rules that will affect the way BT delivers and operates these new services.

Next generation broadband is being touted as being twenty times faster than the current average broadband speeds.

The other optic fibre service run by Virgin Media is not bound by Ofcom’s rules because this service is not open to other providers, whereas BT’s super fast broadband network will be used by other operators.
