uk.gifbt fttc uk superfast broadbandBT revealed last month that the coverage of its "advanced copper" ADSL2+ broadband service (Wholesale Broadband Connect), which offers ISP download speeds of up to 20-24Mbps, would be extended to cover 90% of the UK (22.5 million homes and businesses) by the end of Spring 2013 (here).

At present some 1351 telephone exchanges, which serve more than 70% of premises, have already been WBC enabled and this is set to hit 80% by the end of 2011 (20 million premises). Today BT has kindly furnished ISPreview.co.uk with a full list of all the forthcoming exchange upgrades (i.e. those destined "to be enabled" by the end of Q2-2013), which we've filtered and sorted into alphabetical order.

Sadly the list, which is only a "forward-looking plan" and therefor still subject to change, is far too long for us to paste and so to save space we've thrown all of it onto a separate page. Due to "operational reasons" a handful of exchanges have had to be removed from the current enablement plan.

A BT Spokesperson explained to ISPreview.co.uk

"All forward looking plans are subject to change. However, the expectations reflected in this forward-looking plan are reasonable, but because our rollout involves risks and uncertainties, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking plans."
