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.

One of Openreach’s senior UK broadband and phone engineers, Amjed, recently got the shock of his life while making repairs at a property in Glasgow. Upon removing one of the operator’s copper phone extension sockets from a wall, he came across a wasp’s nest. We assume he must have been investigating a buzzing sound on the line 🙂 .
