Finchampstead benefited by BT’s broadband roll out
More than 4,500 homes and businesses in Finchampstead can now enjoy high speed internet thanks to the broadband up gradation of Eversley exchange by BT.
Michael Noak of the Chamber of Commerce Council in Wokingham said that BT has assured to provide 57 Mbps speed in the area.
BT Operreach makes use of fiber-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) and fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) technologies, both of which offer higher and faster speeds.
FTTC provides download speeds of up to 80 Mbps and upload speed of 20 Mbps.
FTTP is capable of delivering speeds of 110 Mbps and the speed is likely to increase to 330 Mbps, which is the speed BT target for by next summer.
Dr Phillip Lee, the MP representing Finchampstead, stated that BT had informed him that installation of fiber optic broadband will be ideal for the communication facilities in Thames Valley and Finchampstead. It will do a lot in improving the activities of the people and the businesses. BT assured that most of the places will be catered in the near future.
John Weaver of BT said that Eversley will join many other places to get the advantage of the growing fiber networks.
Fiber broadband allows large data files and video files to be sent or received instantly. It also helps in accessing high quality video conference and better backing up of the data in the PCs.
He said that no other service provider is doing as much as BT for Berkshire, but BT will not stop at it. It will do its best for the people of the locality.
Noak is now concentrating on the requirements in Swallowfield and Arborfield. He also wanted the people to take part in large strength in broadband campaign for the place.
