BT provides ‘FTTP on Demand’
BT Openreach will be providing fiber to the premises (FTTP) broadband in eight locations on demand.
The set up will enable the customers to get ultra-fast broadband of speed 330 Mbps for their homes in the area which already has the provision of fiber-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) technology
Earlier, only the customers residing in areas with FTTP provision could get the maximum speeds.
The project will be undertaken in two phases. This will enable Openreach to experience the challenges in the task and to take suitable measures for the execution.
Phase 1, which is for planning and construction will start from July 2013 and will last till the end of the year.
The interested network providers will have the responsibility of providing download speed of 330 Mbps and upload speeds of 20 or 30 Mbps in places like Cornwall, High Wycombe, Bristol South and St.Agnes. Waverley exchange in Edinburgh will also be included in the project in September.
Phase 2 will commence on March 2013 and will last for three months. Testing of new automated order processes will be a part of the phase. The focus will be mainly on the 330/30 Mb product.
Apart from the areas earlier mentioned, the phase will include places like Manchester, Watford, Cardiff, Basingstoke etc.
Mike Galvin of BT Openreach is confident that ‘FTTP on demand’ will definitely o improve the quality of the broadband.
FTTC will suit the household consumers but FTTP will be ideal for businesses.
This development will enable the firms to compete at the national and international level. It will create plenty of job opportunities for the youth.
BT is investing as much as £2.5 billion for upgrading the telecommunication infrastructure to provide super fast broadband for the whole of the UK.
