BT unveils new FTTX locations

BT has named 300 new locations that will be able to take advantage of its ongoing Fiber to the X network deployment. Set to be upgraded between fall 2010 and summer 2011, BT will bring 40 Mbps Fiber to the Cabinet (FTTC) broadband capabilities to four million customer lines mostly in high density areas in London or the southeast.

The UK incumbent service provider said it will connect 2.5 million premises to the fiber-based network by the end of this summer, but it is still far from obtaining its ultimate goal of reaching 10 million by 2012.

But BT continues to make progress. To date, BT has slated 463 telephone exchanges to be upgraded with fiber and it says it will have four million premises connected to the network by the end of 2010.
