Britain Failed to Catch up with FTTH Broadband Plan

Britain Failed to Catch up with FTTH Broadband Plan

The United Kingdom appeared to have the worst FTTH Broadband, according to a recent report. According to the FTTH Council Europe, there are 22 countries having over 1% of households with access to FTTH broadband, while Europe in a whole featured a 16% increase in subscribers. At the moment, there are over 32,000,000 homes in the region with FTTH, featuring 5,950,000 subscribers.

However, the United Kingdom wasn’t in the rankings because of its low FTTH penetration. The statistics say that the country only has 0.05% of subscribers with access to FTTH, despite the government assurance to ensure the fastest broadband in the region by 2015.

In the meantime, along with increases to speed, FTTH also ensures a more stable connection, because radio interference isn’t a problem anymore. Latency is also less of a problem – this is very beneficial for cloud services and content creators, because the uploading times improve.

FTTH Council Europe claims that key countries not mentioned in the ranking may simply fail to use their chance to create a sustainable future, so they have to make a decision to invest in FTTH right now. Industry experts agree that the United Kingdom is definitely “late to the party", but point out that the country isn’t totally off the radar with its FTTH 175,000 homes and 13,000 subscriptions.

The matter is that most developments so far are small scale, so although they are high in numbers, they still have little impact on the overall picture. Another problem of the United Kingdom is that ISPs like BT Openreach focus on getting fibre to offices rather than to the premise or house. They have been discussing the idea of getting the FTTP service to around 10% of British homes, but thus far most areas are only partially ready, so they focus on the headline-grabbing figures of 11,000,000 homes able to get the FTTC service.

The industry observers are assured that this figure remains a goal, while priorities in the roll-out have changed. The British government has been slowed by the intention to provide more comprehensive FTTH coverage than the other countries offer. The United Kingdom has also concentrated on ubiquity of access, while there are EU members with better FTTH deployments that now face the same kind of digital divide.

HiDefHQ avatari got my fibre optic about 3 months ago as our area didnt have it up untll then. About a week after our area got it BT phoned me up offering me the Infinity service 100MB for a cost of £42 month (non optic was 20MB @ £37 month) so i took up the offer!.

puppins666 avatarthe post office is the cheapest and the smallest provider compared to all the big bt and sky who stick on random amounts of money on your bill like the VAT i pay 11 pound line rental a month and 18 pound a month broadband and totaly un restricted i can pull a 700mb film down in about 22 min and i grab about 10 to 15 films a day plus tv shows. the post office is the only one not capping or monitoring.

D4T4 avatarI get approx 4MB on broadband where I live, but I get 5MB on my mobile which has unlimited data. As soon as I suss out how to get my VPN to work properly through my mobile as a router, I'm kicking broadband from O2 to touch.

nobs68 avatarI`m with Virgin Media so i`ve had fibre optic for years. 100meg I pay for and get. They do strangle the bandwidth at peak times which I agree with and I was told this when I signed up only after using my intelligence to ask first. As for being capped, no capping my end dl what the hell i want.

HiDefHQ avatarAll ISP's have there pros & cons. I chose BT simply because of the Unlimited FREE wifi hotspots (BTFON) which i use when not at home.

No avatarThose on Virgin Media and BT should know that they are not getting FTTH fibre to the HOME. They bring fibre optic cable to a cabinet near you. They get the rest of the way to your house using copper coax or twisted pair copper cables. They both hoodwink the uk consumers by describing it as "fibre broadband" When in fact with BT they are only getting Very High Digital Subscriber line. The reason why the UK is way behind is because BT has been allowed to role things out in such a way as to keep their market share and slow down competitors using their network as much as they possibly can. BT has a huge amount of money coming in and its quite happy to sit on its hands and wont do anything unless the UK Governement foots the bill. BT should be broken up and then you will see competition with the broadband fees that have to be paid coming down to something like the level it is at in the rest of Europe. UK subscribers are paying through the nose for crap service from all of them Sky Broadband has to be the worst on this earth with the worste customer service possible

HiDefHQ avatarI already knew about the line not being fibre optic, but it didnt bother me they said i would get between 60-80 MB and thats what i get 75MB so why would i moan about it. It did what it said on the tin, some people are just never satisfied where as i am. last time i researched ISP's sky came out top, Talk Talk was rated the worst service.

No avatarVirgin throttle the bandwidth if you dl a lot in a short time. iv been using peerblock and its stopped this from happening. when i call with a problem they still say im getting a good deal as i dl over 300gb a month, they tried to tell me that they can monitor what i dl, i told them if they can do that why arent they passing on the names of pedos to the police. they soon shut up.
