“UK to have the best broadband in Europe, with ‘superfast broadband’ available to 90% of UK premises by the end of 2015.”

The UK Government wants the UK to have the best broadband in Europe, with ‘superfast broadband’ available to 90% of UK premises by the end of 2015. A complex combination of commercial deployment of fibre broadband (by BT) and cable broadband (by Virgin Media) and public subsidy by the UK Government and local authorities will ensure that the availability of superfast broadband will increase substantially in the next few years. This will help many broadband users who are currently suffering from low broadband speeds.

Investment

Companies like BT are investing a whopping £2.5 billion to roll out a fibre broadband infrastructure to two thirds of the UK. Since December 2012 more than 13 million premises have been granted access to BT fibre broadband. The BT CEO revealed that BT’s plans to deliver much faster broadband for homes and small businesses via a widespread deployment of “G.fast”. This is an innovative technology that BT will test in two pilot locations starting this summer.

Expectations

G.fast will help BT deliver ultrafast speeds of up to 500Mbps to most of the UK within a decade. Deployment will start in 2016/17, subject to the pilots being successful.

Early tests show G.fast is capable of delivering a range of speeds depending on how close the technology is to a customer’s premises. BT expects to offer initial speeds of a few hundred megabits per second to millions of homes and businesses by 2020. Speeds will then increase to around 500Mbps as further industry standards are secured and new kit is developed.
