Credible sources have helped ISPreview.co.uk to uncover plans by Openreach (BT) to introduce a significant new discount on Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband lines for UK ISPs, which is expected to be finalised in time for a launch toward the end of the year (possibly around October).

Openreach (BT) has announced plans to trial ReTransmission (ReTx / G.INP) technology on “more” of their Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC / VDSL2) based broadband network, but what the public briefing doesn’t tell you is that this time they’re going to try rolling it out on their estate of ECI street cabinets.

How about this for consumer choice. Some premises along a street in St James’s (Central London) have just become one of the first UK locations to enjoy a choice of three “full fibre” (FTTP) ultrafast broadband networks, including via Hyperoptic, Openreach (BT) and G.Network. But many more will soon crop up.

Scotland-based UK business ISP Commsworld today claims to have become the first operator to take advantage of Openreach’s (BT) new Dark Fibre X (DFX) product, which is only focused upon serving the limited inter-exchange connectivity market.

Ofcom has today announced that they intend to toughen their existing Broadband Speed Code of Practice, which among other things requires UK ISPs to supply consumers with a personal estimate of their broadband line speed before buying.

Ofcom has decided to drop last year’s investigation into whether BT had correctly billed for Excess Construction Charges (ECCs) when providing new UK business lines (Ethernet services etc.).
