Openreach set to double FTTC downstream speeds to 80 Mbps

Wednesday 5 October 2011 | 11:42 CET | News
Openreach has announced three major developments to provide a major boost to broadband speeds in the UK. In addition to commercially launching an up to 110 Mbps FTTP service, Openreach said it would use this technology to provide downstream speeds of up to 300 Mbps from spring 2012. It also announced that it has secured approval from the relevant authorities to roughly double the speeds delivered by FTTC broadband. This will see FTTC downstream speeds double from up to 40 Mbps to up to 80 Mbps during 2012.
