They only announced "roughly double", not 80Mbps.

They'd previously announced they'd reach 70Mbps in the labs.

"We have plans to roughly double the speed of our fibre-to-the-cabinet based service in 2012."

Great! That should fit in quite nicely for our exchange (originally due Dec 2010 / Jan 2011, but repeatedly pushed back - now due Sept/Oct 2011, so I guess we might just be enabled by the end of 2012).

ADSL2+ with BE
DL Sync around 4.8Mbps
UL Sync 1088kbps

DG834GT with DGTeam firmware

The actual quote is

"During 2012 we will continue to expand our 100Mbps fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) services and to test a 1Gbps
service and we expect to roughly double our fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) speeds to up to 80Mbps. Future changes
are expected to take the potential for FTTC to over 100Mbps."

And the divide did groweth, and the poor fowkes of thine rural hamlets did ask of the Lord God BT,

"Did thine rural subscribers offend thee?"

and the Lord God BT turned and said to its children,

"Cough up thy billions of dosh and dubloons, and thou shall have FTTC on the morrow."

and the townsfolk did rejoice with much mirth and giggling.

20Mb/s upstream would be great.

Someone from NICC said that BT had got permission in the last week. NICC seems to be the co-ordinating body for exactly this purpose, so I guess "industry" does agree. At least technically.

I can't find which particular article listed that quote though...
