BT begins trial of Ultrafast FTTP Broadband from Haydon Wick exchange

BT has started a trial of their ‘ultrafast’ Fibre-to-the-Premises broadband technology, that puts fibre-optic lines direct to homes from the telephone exchange, at Haydon Wick in North Swindon. First users on the trial of the 330Mbps capable lines here have gone live, confirmed BT Openreach.

The development was announced back in February of 2016. This trial is one of BT’s several FTTP technology related trials and a result of their pledge to significantly accelerate deployment of such ultrafast connectivity. FTTP connections are nothing new, but Openreach here is trialling the new “plug and play” technology. It can and will reduce both the costs and complexity involved in connecting a homes or businesses in the near future.

The Haydon Wich trial reaches around 500 residential homes on the development and offers at street-level the fibre lines on Voyager Drive, Ulysses Road, Minnow Close, Metis Road, Mayfly Road, Clementine Road, Boatman Close and Ariadne Road. Openreach is also conducting in other parts of UK similar trials of ways to deploy faster FTTP, like the one in Bradford and other trials in Bedfordshire, at Campton and Meppershall.
