BT superfast home fibre plans fall behind schedule. Again
BT make promises. Then they throw them back in our faces because they hate us. They really, really hate us.
What have they done this time? Get this - the swines aren't going to hit their target of kitting out 12 exchanges with its new fibre network by the end of 2011, like they said they would.
THEY SAID THEY WOULD. THEY PROBABLY WON'T NOW.
BT's broadband programme director and billy bullshiter, Johnny McQuoid, told The Register that BT had been forced to delay the rollout of its fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) technology, til the end of 2011.
Now, those plans are being revised by only giving us six exchanges kitted out with the new, good stuff, as opposed to the 12 they promised. PROMISED.
A BT spokesman says: "it has taken us longer than expected to ramp up from our trial deployment into commercial launch. However, we are now there, and will announce further exchanges in due course."
"We don't expect to roll out to the 12 exchanges by the end of the year, but we fully expect to exceed that number in due course - we will announce these during our regular quarterly roll out updates."
BT also announced that they'd use the FTTP tech to deliver downstream speeds of up to 300Mbit/s from April 2012... but they'll probably end up going back on that comment as well.
THEY HATE US! THEY REALLY REALLY HATE US!
