FTTP is next. I think they can go a bit further than 80Mbps on VDSL, but nothing as far as 330Mbps.

Of course, it is unlikely FTTP will be able to make it into every single property in the country, so for some, it may not even be a "next" option.

Previous ISPs: Virgin Media (50Mb/Cable), Be* Un Limited, ZeN

.... Also the plans to offer a 300 Mbps FTTP product in 2012 has been announced before, the bits that are newer are an interest by BT in vectoring to take VDSL2 to speeds above 100 Mbps and the 1 Gbps field trial for FTTP.

Some of us are still having to put up with 20CN exchanges and will probably not see any change in the near future unless BT get paid to upgrade/improve them smile

Well BT wholesale is going up to 90% of exchanges for 21CN, last 10% will be spread across the country though if BT do win the majority of the BDUK funds could see the smallest exchanges have their cabinets enable for FTTC etc.

Cheaper to have a driver.

Isn't getting stuff from Google quicker using the internet than in a truck?
