The UK's Fibre Broadband Rollout Accelerated [bbc.co.uk]
Telecoms provider BT is accelerating its fibre broadband rollout. It now plans to offer "super-fast" internet speeds to two-thirds of UK premises by the end of 2014.

The target is a year ahead of its original plan.

The firm says its main product will offer maximum download speeds about 10 times faster than at present, at 70-100Mbps on average.

That will help it compete against Virgin Media's 100Mbps offer.

BT says it is employing an additional 520 engineers and bringing forward 300m of investment to achieve the goal.

I am fortunate enough to be in a Virginmedia cable area and on the whole they provide an excellent service.

Yes, that's a great solution, but limited reach. Let's hope this acceleration hits more communities with an effective result.
