Broadband ISP BT has kindly decided to open up the remote record functionality within their TV app so that all users with a UK YouView (IPTV) set-top-box, even if they don’t have a Pay TV subscription with the operator, can access it once support for YouView’s own app is removed at the end of March 2020.

The bosses of several other UK broadband ISPs and organisations, including Gigaclear, Cityfibre and Openreach among others, have now gone into self-isolation at home for at least 7 days after meeting the CEO of BT Group, Philip Jansen, last week. Initially it was thought that this only effected the chiefs of major mobile operators.

Something like this had to happen eventually. BT Group has confirmed that their CEO, Philip Jansen, tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday and has followed the Public Health England protocols to self-isolate.

Last year’s confession by BT that they had failed to immediately apply Ofcom’s new price cap on UK calls to 118 numbers (Directory Enquiries) until June 2019 (here), which resulted in several thousand of EE’s mobile customers being overcharged, has resulted in the operator being fined £245,000.

Mobile operators BT (EE), Vodafone, O2 and Three UK have today reached a final agreement on costs to support the Government’s £1bn Shared Rural Network (SRN) plan, which will work to extend geographic 4G mobile (mobile broadband) coverage to 95% of the UK by the end of 2025. But one aspect may have been watered down.

Openreach (BT) has confirmed to ISPreview.co.uk that they intend to “shut down” Customer Network Solutions (CNS), which is a national team of regionally based experts who would step in to deal with non-standard problems (e.g. moving a distribution point or drop wire etc.). Sadly redundancies may follow.

The deputy leader of Dorset Council, Peter Wharf, this week told a cabinet meeting that he was “now going to be not so nice” to Openreach (BT), which occurred after one of their managers allegedly told the local authority that their current roll-out of “superfast broadband” (FTTC/P) was a “shambles.“

5th March, 2020 (10 Comments)

The Tees Valley Combined Authority (TVCA) has announced an investment of £3.5m with Openreach (BT) under the existing Digital Durham project, which will see the UK operator extend their 1Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband ISP network to cover another 3,000+ homes and businesses by late June 2021.

A number of BT’s broadband customers have been invited to trial their future “Full Fibre” packages, which appear to be based off Openreach’s new top consumer Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) tiers – 500Mbps (75Mbps upload) and 1000Mbps (115Mbps) – that are due to go live on 23rd March (here). But there could be a catch.

The Leeds City Council in Yorkshire has today signed a new £20.3m partnership with BT (Openreach), which will see the latter build a new local “full fibre” network to connect hundreds of schools, NHS and other public sector sites across the city. A new fund will also be setup to support community broadband initiatives.

28th February, 2020 (22 Comments)

Cityfibre has provided ISPreview with an update on their on-going ‘Copper to fibre switchover‘ consultation, which considers the question of retiring Openreach’s (BT) old copper telephone lines in favour of “full fibre” (FTTP) broadband, albeit from the perspective of an alternative network provider.

26th February, 2020 (15 Comments)

24th February, 2020 (34 Comments)

Openreach (BT) has announced trials of a new Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based broadband ISP solution that has been “designed with business customers in mind,” which so far as we can tell appears to be laying the ground work for their future symmetric speed tiers going up to 1000Mbps.
