Full commercial launch of Openreach FTTP services announced


Earlier this month, Openreach announced the full commercial launch of its fibre to the premises (FTTP) range of products. From the press release:
"The full set of wholesale products, which range from 40Mbps to 330Mbps downstream and 2Mbps to 30Mbps upstream, will allow Communications Providers (CPs) to differentiate themselves in the market by offering a wide range of fibre products to suit the needs of small and medium businesses as well as bandwidth-hungry consumers. These products, which have only previously been available to CPs on an ‘early market deployment’ basis, will initially be available within the 15 exchange areas where FTTP infrastructure has been deployed to date. However, this availability will improve as Openreach expands the FTTP network to other exchange areas and explores the option of deploying the service to new housing developments and multi dwelling units such as apartment blocks."
This follows on from the previous announcement of the eight pilot areas where BT's FTTP on demand service will be trialled (details here). A fact sheet about the on demand trial is available here and another about the FTTP service is available here.
