Millions of homes with BT and Sky broadband will finally get their slow speeds repaired.
A MAJOR broadband upgrade is being pushed out, which could result in substantially faster internet connections for millions of homes using companies like BT, TalkTalk, and Sky.
BT, Sky, and TalkTalk users will soon have access to much faster internet. That’s thanks to Openreach, which recently announced additional investment in its full-fibre technology, which can beam the internet into living rooms at substantially faster speeds.
If you haven’t heard, complete fibre provides a better method to access the internet by bringing the latest cable technology directly into homes rather than depending on outdated copper infrastructure that can slow things down to a crawl.
Fibre to the Premises (FFTP) is critical for houses in severe need of a speed boost, as this technology may provide download speeds of up to 900Mbps.
At such speed, a whole HD movie can be downloaded in under 40 seconds, as opposed to the 12 minutes it takes through copper wires. BT-owned Openreach claims to be bringing ultra-reliable FTTP broadband to 551 more towns and cities, with 43,000 homes receiving the upgrade per week.
According to the company, more than five million homes and companies can now request the increase.
Because the Openreach network is used by BT broadband, Sky, and TalkTalk, these Internet Service Providers (ISPs) should all be able to offer customers enhancements in the future.
The news follows Openreach’s announcement last month that it will target more than six million rural and hard-to-reach homes and businesses across the UK, with these latest urban locations ranging from Bournemouth, Dorset, Dunfermline, Scotland, Kettering, East Midlands, Sunderland, and Wrexham, Wales.
Clive Selley, CEO of Openreach, stated of the upgrade, “Nobody in the UK is building Full Fibre quicker, further, or at a higher quality than Openreach.” Our engineers and construction partners are working around the clock to bring this life-changing technology to rural, urban, and suburban areas across the country, and we’re excited to be able to provide additional information about where and when we’ll be constructing.
