BT expands reach of ≤20Mbps broadband

But real-world speeds still low

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

BT today said it will increase the number of telephone exchanges capable of supporting ADSL 2+ to allow 80 per cent of the population to gain "up to 20Mbps" broadband by the end of the year.

That means around 20m homes and offices will potentially be able to have access to the service.

The links will be offered to ISPs by BT Wholesale.

Punters won't see 20Mbps speeds, mind.

BT had to admit that a March 2011 report on real-world fixed broadband speeds published by Ofcom showed that "the average download speed received for ‘up to’ 20/24Mbps DSL packages was 6.2 Mbps". ®
