We have a ‘mixed economy’ strategy to provide copper, fibre and other access technologies, which
promotes customer choice and flexibility
There are two main ways that Openreach will introduce fibre optic technology into BT’s access network:
–
–
•
•
FTTP: an all-fibre solution
FTTC: fibre will be deployed from the exchange to the street cabinet in parallel to existing copper
Openreach offers its services to all CPs, including BT Wholesale, BT Retail and BT Global Services, on
an equivalent basis
ADSL2+ will also be available offering headline speeds of up to 24Mb/s

FTTP deployment summary
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
September 2008: First end-users connected at Ebbsfleet Valley, Kent using
FTTP greenfield solution, with up to100Mb/s downstream speed
From early summer 2010: FTTP brownfield CP trial
• Highams Park (London) and Bradwell Abbey (Milton Keynes)
• Up to 40k premises passed
Plan to provide FTTP in up to 25% of the 10m premises
FTTP will be sold initially as an overlay service with voice over legacy copper
Fibre voice services will be developed
There is potential for higher downstream speeds in the future
An exchange area may have both FTTC and FTTP present to best address
customer needs

Building for the future
Note: Applications and services are for illustrative purposes
•
•

•
•
Consumers can take their digital life one stage further e.g. sharing high quality video footage in addition
to pictures becomes possible, as the time taken to upload content is dramatically shortened
Businesses can increase flexible and remote working, saving money on office overheads and improving
the work-life balance of their employees
Large graphic and video files can be sent immediately online rather than delivered to clients on hard disk
Business will be able to use high quality voice and video calls, reduce the amount of time travelling to
customers while still gaining the benefit of direct customer contact
BT’s fibre investment benefits all CPs, not just BT, and means we are continuing to drive an open,
competitive and innovative market in the UK - that’s good for all customers in the UK

Key points
•
•
•
•
•
•
BT operates in a highly competitive broadband market where consumers have an
extensive choice of services with some of the lowest prices in the world
Our open platforms, allow all service providers in the UK to access our new fibre
technology through their existing systems. We also bring our own services, at
infrastructure, wholesale and retail levels, to the market through Openreach, BT
Wholesale, BT Retail and BT Global Services
Broadband has boosted the UK economy in recent years, becoming an essential
part of our customers’ lives. In 2008 BT announced that it would invest £1.5bn to
make next generation fibre-based broadband – super-fast broadband - available to
at least 40% of the UK, some 10m homes and businesses, by summer 2012
Both our fibre solutions are already live in the UK and this allows us to be highly
confident of both the performance levels and deployment commitments
Our upstream speeds, at up to 10Mb/s, will be the fastest in the UK, more than 6
times faster than Virgin Media’s fastest service*
BT has been selected as preferred partner to work with Northern Ireland’s
Department of Enterprise Trade and Investment on a regional next generation
broadband programme. We are also in discussion with a number of UK regional
authorities on their next generation broadband plans
*Virgin’s 50Mb broadband offers upload speeds of up to 1.5Mb
