BT unveil 300 new uber-internet locations
Here’s a big list that might result in a pleasant surprise for you – it’s the next 300 locations that BT will be adding to its fibre network.
The blurb claims that the deployment will bring 40Mbits/sec fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) connections to approximately four millions homes across the country, with work starting in September and running into Summer 2011. In short, you’ll be able to download a picture of a giant before you’ve even thought about doing it. Or something.
BT have added that the super duper new network will be available on an "open, wholesale basis to all companies providing broadband services," which follows a bit of a spat recently where Ofcom ruled that BT should be doing just that. BT stuck out its mighty tongue and said that it had been doing it anyway and that Ofcom wasn’t the boss of it, even though it is a bit.
Anyway – as we said, the list is here – have a butchers and see if you’re on there…
