BT Infinity and beyond – home fibre optic service

Bookmark and Share

by Darren Allan

BT is set to launch its first consumer packages for next-generation fibre Internet access.

To get BT Infinity, as it has been named, you will naturally need to live in a next-generation broadband enabled area.

Download speeds of a theoretical maximum of 40Mbps will be offered, although users will feel an even bigger acceleration in upload speeds, which will (again in theory) go up to 10Mbps.

The exact speed you get will depend on how close you are to the roadside fibre cabinet which connects back to the exchange.

The basic Infinity package charges a very competitive £20 per month, on an 18 month contract. Although on that tariff, your upload speed will be limited to 2Mbps (that’s still four times as fast as standard broadband, mind).

You’ll also be limited to 20GB of data per month, and a £50 activation fee will apply to set the service up.

The second Infinity package charges £25 per month, but waives the activation fee, has unlimited data usage, and offers the full upload welly of 10Mbps.

You’ll be able to sign up for BT Infinity come January 25th.
