BT List Next 98 UK Locations for its Superfast Broadband Deployment

Tuesday, Jun 26th, 2012 (11:08 am) - Score 15,625

BTOpenreach, which provides rival internet providers (ISP) with access to BT’s telecoms network, has today revealed the next batch of 98 telephone exchange upgrades for its national £2.5bn UK roll-out of 80Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) and 330Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based superfast broadband services.

The new list (Phase 10), when taken by itself, will add almost 800,000 homes and businesses to the operators superfast network. The majority of these exchanges have been given a Ready for Service (RFS) date of late 2013 and, once enabled, should bring BT’s total superfast broadband coverage up to nearly 17 Million UK premises.

However it should be noted that BT’s superfast FTTC technology will, on average, cover 85% of homes and businesses within an enabled telephone exchange area (here); that still leaves quite a big gap at each location where a superfast service will not be available.. yet.

Mike Galvin, BTOpenreachs MD Network Investment, said:

This is great news for 98 communities across the UK. Our roll-out of fibre continues apace, with over 10 million homes now having access to the many benefits this technology can deliver.

Today’s announcement brings us another important step closer towards our goal of providing this service to two-thirds of the UK by the end of 2014. We are keen to go beyond this with the help of BDUK funding and further engagement with local government and communities.”

Each of the above telephone exchanges will support FTTC technology and a small number are also likely to be enabled for the operator’s fastest fibre optic FTTP service (we are awaiting further details on this). BT currently hopes to cover 66% of the UK population by the end of 2014 through its own investment, although this could be pushed up to 90% by 2017 with a lion’s share of state aid support from the governments Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) office.

It’s also worth reminding readers that BT’s FTTP service will be available “on demand” (FTTP-On-Demand) to almost all FTTC enabled areas from Spring 2013. This will be a premium product offering speeds of up to 330Mbps and will be aimed at business users; although home users should be able to purchase related packages (expect them to be expensive).
