Super-Superfast 330Mbps Broadband Coming Down BT's Pipes From July

By Gary Cutlack on at

The latest escalation in the superfast broadband war will take place this July, when BT's Openreach network department will start to offer the even-faster-superfast 330Mbps top-whack speed to its customers.

The latest move will see BT's fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) product made available for other ISPs to resell to the likes of us from July 2nd, although chances are hardly anyone's going to be bragging about these speeds in the near future.

BT's list of exchanges with FTTP options [PDF] is rather poor, with only a few hotspots in the likes of Derby, Eastbourne, and the amazingly well-connected Cornish towns of Fowey, Cambourne and Hayle, among the lucky list to see the service this side of 2013. [ZDNet]
