Campaigners who support B4RN’s community driven deployment of 1000Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH/P) broadband in the Lancashire village of Dolphinholme will be pleased to learn that the county council looks set to stop the funding for BT’s rival deployment of 330Mbps capable FTTP in the area, but it may not be quite so clear cut.

The Council of the European Union last week formally adopted new rules that aim to make it both “easier and cheaper” to roll-out ultrafast broadband networks, such as fibre optic infrastructure.

BTOpenreach has kindly responded to this morning’s article by confirming the latest batch of 163 telephone exchanges that have been upgraded to support the Fibre on Demand (FoD / FTTPoD) service, which makes their “ultra-fast” and ultra-expensive 330Mbps (30Mbps uploads) fibre optic broadband (FTTP) product available via FTTC capable lines.

BTOpenreach’s new FTTP on Demand (FoD) product offers the attractive potential for anybody within reach of an FTTC capable line to order a full fibre optic broadband connection, which can deliver stable speeds of 330Mbps (30Mbps uploads) using Fibre-to-the-Premises technology. But have cost and confusion killed the attraction.
