UK based telecom giants BT has announced that they
are launching new higher speed wholesale broadband
services across the UK. This would provide speeds as
fast as 8Mbit/s to their customers in the country.
BT has already conducted their tests for this
service and is now ready to launch BT ADSL Max and
BT ADSL Max Premium broadband services throughout
the country by the end of the month.
For this, they have upgraded as many as 5300
exchanges to support higher speed broadband. These
exchanges alone serves as much as 99.6 per cent of
UK homes and businesses. The plan is to provide
highspeed broadband connectivity to help people get
more out of their connections to the internet.
The company is hoping that 78 per cent of BT
phone lines should support broadband at line rates
of 4Mbit/s and above, with 6Mbit/s and above
available to more than 42 per cent. For consumers
who are located near their exchanges, speeds can be
as high as 8Mbit/s.
