BT has revealed it will be offering a 110Mbps fibre broadband service from Spring 2011.
The fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) service will be provided by BT Openreach, the telecom giant's wholesale division. UK ISPs will be able to rent the lines from BT Openreach for £21.54 per month, although how much the final cost to consumers will be remains unknown. BT did say there would be a £75 installation fee.
"You're going to get 100Mbps, it's not an 'up to' service," a BT spokesman told PC Pro.
"If the network is flooded, you get a prioritised 20Mbps per user," BT added.
Trials of the service are currently underway in Bradwell Abbey in Milton Keynes and Highams Park in North London, and will be rolled-out nationwide from March next year.
