BT to roll out FTTH broadband to 10,000 Bradwell Abbey properties

Tuesday, December 20th 2011 by Editorial
More premises in Bradwell Abbey will be connected to BT's ultra-fast broadband service.

BT has announced almost 10,000 homes and businesses in Milton Keynes are set to gain access to its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband service.

The telecoms giant's latest round of improvement works in the town will benefit a total of 9,600 properties in the Bradwell Abbey district, where BT first trialled its FTTH product.

Premises included in the new rollout, which will be completed by the end of 2012, are set to receive up to 100Mbps download speeds, rising as high as 300Mbps next spring.

John Weaver, BT's regional director for the south-east, said the upgrade to the Bradwell Abbey exchange will offer significant benefits to local businesses.

"At a stroke, small and medium-sized firms will have access to big business speeds at much lower costs allowing them to find new markets," he explained.

The news comes just a matter of days after the company revealed an additional 178 exchanges across the UK have been earmarked for fibre optic broadband upgrades.

Yes what about the rest of us? The UK Government promise superfast broadband delivery by 2015 for 90 percent of the UK. This is the rough promise as Jeremy Hunt states something slightly different on every press release or speech. BT Group are delivering 66 percent, this leaves barring others, some 24 percent to deliver over the next 3 years. At 8 percent a year, will this Government actually deliver? As they have spent over 12 months just paper shuffling between themselves and Local Authorities.
