55/10 Mbps FTTC


[link to this post]
 
In December 2015 there were reports of a BT Openreach announcement of a "middle tier" FTTC service offering 55/10 Mbps. The service was supposed to be available to ISPs from early this year. Unless I have missed it there doesn't seem to be an ISP offering a 55/10 tariff. Since BT is all about profits my assumption is that Openreach would never have offered 55/10 Mbps unless it had clear indications that ISPs wanted to buy it from them and offer it as a retail product. Does anyone know what's going on or has 55/10 sunk without trace?

Not gonna to happen! 40/10 to 55/10 is rather daft idea by openreach. If it was 60/10 then I think many isps will go for this.

Not daft if it was at the request of an ISP.

I always suspected it would be BT Retail so they didn't have to mess about when Infinity 1 customers want BT Sport in UHD.

BT Broadband will be making some portfolio changes as from tomorrow:

a. Faster connections BT will have the fastest standard fibre speeds in the country at 52mb
b. Better connected through their extensive 5million Wi-Fi hotspots
c. Safer as standard with BT Protect or BT Protect plus, parental controls and cloud storage to keep your photos and files safe (note some of the increases in cloud storage too!)
d. Reliable through both their most reliable connection via the BT home hub

Why is it a con?

We know it refers to the maximum of the product, and all current offers end at midnight tonight.
