300/65 mbs broadband in USA

Verizon has upped its broadband speeds in the USA to 300 D/L and 65 U/L  It shows the way things are going. A bit pricey at $210 a month, but it will change the way small businesses and power users access the Net. At the very least they'll need to upgrade the LAN in their homes. Part of my home LAN still runs at 10 M.
Over to you BT/PN  Smiley

When FTTP is available in more places than Milton Keynes and a couple of hamlets in Cornwall.  BT could fibre the UK by pulling out the copper and selling it as scrap.  Wink

They're about to trial that at the Deddington exchange in Oxfordshire. It's a small exchange but the plan is to convert it to be fibre and replace the copper (although I don't know if they'll sell the copper  Smiley). If that trial is successful then I'd expect it to move on to other areas too. Openreach are also working with some of the house building companies and installing fibre at certain new build sites.
