Meep Meep! Road runner-speed broadband approaching
The green light for the roll-out will mean that BT can now crack on with the laying of fibre optic cable that will make the dream a reality and dwarf Virgin Media’s current 50Mbps cable speed.
But it won’t be cheap – the project will cost roughly £1.5 billion over three years and BT are permitted to make a profit from leasing out its lines to other ISPs once it’s all up and running.
So, we predict a future filled with offers of 100Mpbs broadband that in truth only delivers about 30Mbps unless you live within spitting distance of a local exchange, and all for a monthly charge of £50. Hope we’re wrong though.
