Openreach Says “copper will run out of steam” and Calls for FTTP Support

Quote:
Openreach’s (BT) Chairman, Mike McTighe, has told the Broadband World Forum that “we are getting to the point where the copper will run out of steam” and there’s a need to focus on “full fibre” (FTTP/H), but he warned that this could only be done with ISP support and “increases in wholesale pricing.”
This should focus minds at VM / Liberty with regards to getting the higher upload speed work finished, along with the 500Mb+ preparations.

Openreach demands higher broadband prices for ultrafast upgrades.

BT's network arm Openreach has warned that a multibillion-pound investment in broadband upgrades hinges on higher prices.

The company unveiled the results of an industry consultation, saying it needed to spread the £3bn to £6bn cost of new ultrafast fibre-optic lines for 10 million homes across the broadband market.

We spend about £14bn on overseas aid, so why not cut that in half and provide the country with proper broadband.

Because quite a lot of people would die if we did that, and we're a nice caring country ?

Looking forward to finally upgrading this connection to at least the minimum 10Mbit/s. Preferably at least a few months before February 4250 rolls around...

You mean like the caring country that insists a friend of mine has an assessment that he is not fit to work every six months, despite having a condition which has been determined as medically untreatable & leaves him permanently housebound.

What about tests like this for the people we are giving money too abroad!
