UK to pass 250,000 super-fast broadband connections this month

The UK is expected to pass 250,000 high-speed broadband lines this month according to broadband analysis firm Point Topic. The company has projected figures based on December 2010 data to determine that the number of broadband lines with a speed of greater than 25Mbps at the end of March was 236,000, and should exceed 250,000 in April

250,000 is a pretty low number and 25Mbs is very much at the bottom end of HS broadband, of the 250,000 a 146,000 are customers using Virgin Media

So BT's rolout is not as impressive as it makes out.

the rollout may be, but the uptake isn't - hence BT complaining about low uptake.

THe figures are about HS Broadband not FTTC. Most users would not get the minimum 25MBs to count as HS speed broadaband with BT's FTTC

BS. seen 3 people with fttc all have 40meg down speed, 10meg up bar a few K here or there. Longest stretch I was about 650M from the cab (copper). most people will get above 25meg (isp backhaul providing)

Wrong - BT FTTC figures are included I suggest a read of http://www.thinkbroadband.com/news/i/4641.html and then comment back if you believe they are not included in the figures

BT FTTP around 3,700

WIth the total identified as using BT networks being 86,000

Hehe!

[mischief]
I think he is quite right.

Well, perhaps not quite.

I am absolutely sure no-one gets 25 MegaBytes per second. [/mischief]

More seriously re Openreach FTTC, with the very low awareness of below 15Mbps estimate connections being available, we have a minimum estimate of 15Mbps and a maximum of 40Mbps, though I can't recall many/any above 35Mbps. We also see I think 100% - 1 user actuals of 40Mbps connection from estimates as low as my 26.8Mbps

Neither can I recall any actuals under below 25Mbps. Nearly all above 30Mbps.

(Logical) induction indicates a median sync speed around 27.5Mbps and a mean well above that.
