[bcs] Most of London to get fibre broadband by 2011
Most Londoners will benefit from fibre broadband by spring 2011 according to BT.
The communications giant has announced it will be rolling out the technology to 87 per cent of the Greater London area.
Following BT's proposals earlier this year to add 114 exchanges to the few already on the schedule, the firm now says it hopes to complete by March next year.
That means around 2 million homes and businesses will be able to use Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) or Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTC) technology.
The announcement comes as part of BT's plans to roll out fibre broadband to two-thirds of the UK by 2015, but it looks like London will get to enjoy the technology quicker than the rest of the country.ADNFCR-2575-ID-19840049-ADNFCR
