BT today announced it is set to launch a new gigabit home broadband service to consumers across the UK from later this month. The service will form part of a new range of next generation Full Fibre plans – designed to offer consumers average speeds up to 25 times faster than Superfast fibre.
BT’s new gigabit home broadband service will offer customers a best-in-class broadband experience, ensuring it is perfect for busy connected homes where multiple online devices stream, browse, monitor and game at once and at the busiest times. It will also provide a future proof connection to enable homes to make the most of new high-bandwidth products and services such as 8K video, online gaming and the increasingly connected smart home. BT’s service will also offer ultrafast upload speeds – perfect for live online gaming, smart security camera monitoring, home working and video calling.
BT’s new gigabit service will be available in hundreds of cities, towns and villages across the UK, including rolling out across Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Leeds, London and Manchester from later this month, totalling more than two million households, and giving BT the biggest Full Fibre network reach of any provider in the UK. Beyond this, BT has an ambition to reach around half of homes in the UK by the end of 2025.
BT Full Fibre will be a perfect accompaniment to BT’s new range of flexible TV packages designed to offer customers the freedom to choose the TV shows, films and sport they want, when they want - with the flexibility to change their package every month.
Further information on BT’s Full Fibre home broadband service, including pricing and availability for new and existing customers will be made in the coming weeks. Customers wanting to be the first to hear more can register their interest at: www.bt.com/full-fibre-interest
