BT unveils broadband upgrade to 300 exchanges

BT plans to upgrade just over 300 exchanges between autumn 2010 and summer 2011 to extend high-speed broadband to four million more homes.

BT plans to upgrade just over 300 exchanges between autumn 2010 and summer 2011 to extend high-speed broadband to four million more homes.

The company said the technology would be available on an open wholesale basis to all companies that provide broadband services.

This is the latest chapter in BT's £1.5bn programme to make super-fast fibre-based broadband available to street cabinets that serve at least 40% of the UK, some 10 million homes, by summer 2012.

"Four million premises will have been connected by the end of 2010 in the largest single commercial investment in fibre-based broadband ever undertaken in the UK," a BT spokesman said.
