BT to boost speed of Infinity 1 broadband speed up to 76Mbps for free

BT has started upgrading its 53Mbps capable Infinity 1 fibre broadband service on FTTC lines. So, existing customers will be happy to know that the provider will be rewarding them with a free boost of speeds, up to 76Mbps and cloud storage also is being doubled. However, not all are being benefited as the ‘last mile’ copper line is not good enough to support the speeds on many premises. The upgrade is expected to be finished by middle of November, this year. When the new service on Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC/VDSL2) profile is activated, customers may experience a short interruption and the speeds will take a couple of days to settle.

As fibre goes only to the cabinet and copper lines run to reach the property, only if your line actually supports BT’s up to 52Mbps product, should you actually benefit from an increase in sync speed, otherwise it would be slower. Those who get a better download speed will naturally get higher upstream rate, to enjoy better on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Those who order BT’s Infinity product before 13th August, will get an automatic upgrade, if the line can support it. Those who order it after the date will surely get the upgrade if, again, the line can support it.
