BT ramps up fibre-optic roll-out plan

5m homes with potential access by June

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

BT Openreach is to connect a further 66 exchanges - together feeding almost 1m houses and office premises - to its fibre-optic network between now and the end of 2012.

Openreach, BT's infrastructure arm, has a list of existing and will-be-connected exchanges on its website.

The company said the 66 new locations - and a further number, to be announced - are "spread across Britain".

Some will go live by the end of the year, but most will come on stream in 2012.

Openreach sells connectivity to ISPs, including BT itself, so linking up the exchanges is only half of the story. Service providers will be needed to offer broadband to local punters.

The company's tech offers download speeds of up to 40Mbps and upstream speeds of 10Mbps, it claimed. ®
