BT not upgrading


[link to this post]
 
Is it true that BT have stopped upgrading exchanges to 21CN because the ADSL2+ broadband product is actually not fit for purpose (faster it may be to those on small ds attenuations) and that they get more revenue via 20CN BB customers through the ISPs than they do from 21CN.
Is it also true that there is less than 0.5% of BT customers whose exchange has been upgraded to 21CN and why have they stopped doing it?

It would seem that FTTx for the majority is a rural myth never mind urban.

I guess some people might think it is funny, but to point out figures are wrong, and BT Wholesale has been announcing further exchanges to be upgraded

Thanks but do you think all exchanges in the UK will be upgraded this decade or is that not possible due to financial constraints on BT.in that they need to get a good return on investment.

Obviously there has been a big push in some parts of London for for FTTx due to the Olympics next year, expense not an issue because of that I guess.

I can't be 100% certain about figure used (so perhaps I shouldn't have quoted it) but what would you say was a more realistic figure and can it be verified by anyone other than BT?

I'm pleased for you, but it looks like it is only exchanges with 4000+ users (averaged out) at the moment.

No again, if they had included the two largest towns in the counties of Powys and Ceredigion they would have, I will have to wait too!

Oh well bang goes that theory.

Hope you don't have to wait years for an upgrade to your exchange.

Households getting ADSL2+ as option from BT Wholesale 60% mark, that is off top of head - a lot higher than 0.5%. By end of decade 2020, expect ADSL2+ to be being phased out anyway, just as ADSL is now.

Also London and FTTX, are you including places like Milton Keynes, GALASHIELS, Sunderland, list of lastest 114 exchanges http://www.btplc.com/News/Articles/Showarticle.cfm?A...

ADSL2+ though is actually available to around 80 to 90% of households over the TalkTalk network.
