BT to add 156 'super-fast' broadband exchangesBT Infinity fibre broadband for 5.5m homes

08 April 2011

BT Infinity

BT Openreach has announced plans to extend its 'super-fast' fibre optic broadband network upgrades to 156 new locations by the year's end.

The new locations, so claims BT, will give 1.5 million homes and businesses access to super-fast broadband based on superior fibre technology. 

It'll deploy a mixture of Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) and Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband, which offer up to 40Mb/s and 100Mb/s respectively.

A BT Openreach spokesperson said: 'Our fibre programme is well underway with more than four million premises now able to order a fibre-based broadband service from their chosen supplier. 

'And today we’re announcing a new set of locations serving a further 1.5 million premises, many of which will be able to enjoy the benefits of super-fast upload and download speeds from as early as this summer.'

Super-fast broadband target

This latest announcement continues BT's pledge to reach two-thirds of UK premises with fibre broadband by 2015, as part of a £2.5 billion project. Once this latest upgrade is complete, BT will have reached 5.5 million homes and business.
