BT Promising ‘ultrafast’ Broadband of 500 Mbps in UK Within a Decade

BT Skills
Here’s some potentially good news while that film is downloading at a snail’s pace: British telecom company BT has promised “ultrafast” broadband of up to up to 500 Mbps within a decade. The company is even saying speeds of 1,000 Mbps will be achievable on premium services. Both are significantly higher than the current 18.7 Mbps average in the UK. In a release published Friday, BT CEO Gavin Patterson set out the company’s ambitions to “transform the UK broadband landscape from superfast to ultrafast.” The technology, named G.fast, will be trialled in two pilot locations in Cambridgeshire and Newcastle this summer, with full deployment starting in 2016 or 2017 if they’re successful.
