New data has given us our first indication of which network operators hold the greatest share of the new build homes market, at least with respect to those catering for such sites by deploying Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband ISP technology.

Over the past few weeks a small number of Zen Internet’s UK broadband customers – primarily those on their Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) packages – have reported a drop in speed, which in some cases has been significant. The issue seems to relate to a platform migration, but thankfully the ISP has now resolved “most” of it.

New research from the University of Cambridge – supported by BT and Huawei – has attempted to identify the theoretical limits of Openreach’s standard UK copper broadband lines (unshielded twisted copper pairs), while harnessing up to 12GHz of spectrum.

Telecoms giant BT (EE) has today announced another shake-up of its branding, which in simple terms will see EE – over time – become the “flagship brand for our consumer customers” (i.e. converged broadband and mobile plans etc.) and BT become the flagship brand for their Enterprise and Global units.

Uswitch.com has attempted to identify the top 104 UK locations for hybrid workers, which sees the city of York come top thanks to its broadband speeds (159Mbps), good schools, low crime, and closeness to Leeds.
