    see or hear of plans from Virgin media to also increase their headline speeds We already know that they have run trials that allows them to offer speeds of up to 1 5Gb using the same infrastructure that they have already in place Virgin s 1 5Gb broadband trial a success On top of this BT also announced that they will be able to double the fibre broadband speeds that the majority of the country will receive via their FTTC deployment from 40Mb to 80Mb BT are investing 2 5bn in rolling out fibre broadband across the UK the majority of which is via Fibre To The Cabinet which then requires the standard copper cables from the streetside cabinet to take broadband the remaining distance by the end of 2015 they hope to have fibre broadband available to around two thirds of the country Liv Garfield the chief executive of BT Openreach said Today is a significant step in the UK s broadband journey These developments will transform broadband speeds across the country and propel the UK up the broadband league tables All our fibre products are fit for the future and these developments show that to be the case As always we want to go further and faster and so our journey doesn t end here We can turn up the dial should there be demand and so we can look to the future with confidence No one is keener than us to extend these super fast speeds to rural areas and so we will be bidding for public funds to help extend these services even further The challenge is a tough one but by working with the public sector it is within our reach BT sell their fibre broadband to customers

with the roll out not set to slow down There are already plenty of other exchanges that are earmarked ready for upgrading to fibre and BT have released the names of 66 new exchanges that will also be included Some of these new exchanges will be upgraded by the end of this year but most will be being done during 2012 By the end of the roll out BT are aiming to have covered two thirds of UK homes with fibre by 2015 the majority are to be connected via FTTC Fibre To The Cabinet which currently offers broadband speeds up to 40Mb although speeds in future should be able to be increased Some other interesting facts about BT s 2 5bn fibre investment are that they are currently passing around 80 000 new premises per week By the end of the programme they will have installed 30 000 cabinets connecting 200 000 distribution points and enabled over 1 000 exchanges which will also mean they will need to lay over 50 000km of fibre Those wanting to sign up for fibre broadband can do so with BT

future this could be increased to download speeds of 60Mb and upload speeds of 15Mb FTTC uses fibre optics to deliver the broadband to the street side cabinet and form there the standard copper wire

    1 spent The government have defended their 1 2 billion investment of tax payers money to help with the roll out of next generation fibre optic broadband claiming it will return 20 to the UK economy by 2024 for every 1 it is investing even though many claim that it is once again helping BT become a monopoly broadband provider since they are the only company to win any of the public funds and are the only company left in the bidding process for the remaining funds However the government say that for every 1 that they are investing in the broadband deployment the UK economy will benefit by 20 by 2024 The Broadband Delivery UK BDUK scheme was set up to help distribute the government funds to the various areas where fibre optic broadband roll out was needed but would not be covered by BT Broadband or Virgin Media with their own funding because they were not deemed to be financially beneficial to the companies to do so Originally the government put 530m in the pot with local authorities who bid for funding expecting to match this amount for each of their own individual schemes a further 250m is to be put into the pot after 2015 These findings were made in a government commissioned UK Broadband Impact Study Impact Report and other benefits that were detailed were that households could save 45m per year by 2024 with more people being able to remote work from home and that by 2014 that it would help with the creation of 11 000 jobs and a net increase in jobs of 20 000 by 2024 Some will wonder if BT really needed the extra funding in light of their recent high spending on rights for both Premiership football which has cost them 738 million for 38 live games per season for 3 seasons and their 3 years of exclusive UK rights to the Champions League football from 2015 which is to cost them 900m Filed under Fibre broadband News Tags BDUK BT fibre broadband Government claim fibre broadband spending will return 20 for every 1 spent Government investment in next generation broadband Author Mark 11 01 am Comments 0 November 11 2013 BT get exclusive Champions League football for 900m from 2015 BT are expected to entice more customers to signing up for its BT Fibre broadband now they have won the exclusive rights to the Champions League for 3 years from 2015 at a cost of nearly 900 million The deal with UEFA means that BT will be able to broadcast all 350 fixtures each season for 3 years from 2015 which includes all the Champions League and Europa League games and puts an end to Sky ITV being able to show the games ITV have been the free to air broadcaster of the Champions League since 1992 however they were not willing to pay what they considered to be over the odds in the latest live rounds rights This won t be the end of free European football on TV though as part of the 299 million per year deal was that BT are to show at least one match of each British football team competing in the European competitions for free each season although this does leave the majority still needing a subscription of some description to watch the others Currently BT allow BT Broadband customers receive and watch BT Sport channels for free but have stated that most Champions League games will incur an extra charge Already BT has spent 738 million on the rights to screen 38 live Premier League games per season for 3 years as they go head to head with Sky BT are using the incentive of live sports on their own channels to bring new customers to use their broadband services and as BT have much deeper pockets than others who have tried to take on Sky in the past they are proving so far that they are able to match the financial muscle of Sky and even now start to beat them making Sky much less exclusive as the only place to get live sports For those who don t have BT Broadband services they are still able to receive the BT Sport channels by paying a subscription for them however BT s main target aim will be for customers to make out multi play services such as Broadband Telephone and TV packages with them as they aim to recoup their huge investment both in fibre optic broadband and also in the launch of the Sports channels
