fibre optic cableBT has just released a new list of 63 local UK telephone exchange locations where its new superfast (up to 100Mbps) fibre optic based broadband services ( FTTC , FTTH / P ) will become available from. The move is part of BT's £1.5bn programme to deliver next generation services into 10 million homes (40% coverage) by 2012.

This list marks the 4th phase of the operator’s nationwide rollout; the exchanges listed below are intended to be enabled by late summer this year. They follow the first March 2009 release of 29 locations (here) and the July 2009 release of a further 69 (here).

Fibre-to-the-Cabinet technology ( FTTC ) delivers a fast fibre optic link to the operators street level cabinets, while the remaining connection - between cabinets and homes - is done using VDSL / VDSL2 (similar to current ADSL broadband but faster over short distances) through existing copper cable; FTTC will initially deliver speeds of up to 40Mbps, rising to 60Mbps in the future (uploads could also hit 5-10Mbps).

In addition some 2.5 million of the 10 million total will be covered by Fibre-to-the-Premises / Home ( better known as FTTH ) technology, which takes the fibre optic cable directly to your doorstep for a more reliable top speed of 100Mbps. By comparison FTTC performance is likely to be more variable, with minimum speeds hovering around 10Mbps; that’s still very good when compared with today’s services.
