BT release details of fibre optic rollout

If you receive your broadband through either of the following exchanges, now's a good time to start getting excited. BT have announced that Muswell Hill, London, and Whitchurch, South Glamorgan will be the first two opperational exchanges in their Fibre to the Cabinet ( FTTC ) scheme.

The exchanges will be run by Openreach, and will be available on a wholesale basis to all other UK communication providers, hence reaching the public almost as soon as the scheme goes live. Although this is a fibre scheme, the cables only run to the exchange - the final stretch from exchange to home will still use copper wires. This will still leave users with a pretty hefty (by UK standards, anyway!) 40mbps connection.
