UK: BT Extends Fast Broadband Roll-Out [news.bbc.co.uk]
BT has announced that it will expand its roll-out of next-generation broadband to bring super-fast services to two-thirds of the UK.

Originally its fibre services, offering speeds of up to 40 megabits per second (Mbps), were due to reach around 40% of the population by 2012.

A 1bn investment will see the project roll out to a further 20% of the population by 2015.

60% in 5 years sounds fairly impressive. Probably not equal to Japan or the likes but solid progress.

BT are making more money than they expected after having cut a fair number of jobs, hopefully this investment will equate to new jobs built on solid internet access.

Yes, I thought so, too.

Still waiting for it here, however, I suspect we'll be some way down the list.
