BT are passing over 10,000 homes a week. How is that a slow roll out?

Because 10,000 homes per week is 520,000 homes per year, which means to get the governments 85% target of homes by 2015, will still be waiting for another 37 years after that at the current rate of 10,000 homes per week. Simple maths.

Very interesting watch! But the technology is still very young and expensive we won't even see the first gene of mobiles untill end of next year using 4g although I think apple are building it into the new iphone5 . But interms of pc use I think I my well be a way of before we see it sold and a lot longer than that before it can rival fibre for speed just look at how hard it is to get planning permishion to put up masts .

With average speeds of 5 - 6 Mbps, I can't somehow see 4G competing with Infinity on speed or price. I'd be very suspicious of predictions for higher than that (such as the experiments done in the video, standing next to the mast!). 😉

 

Good for mobile though.

As I recall, 3G was going to be wonderful...  Infinity, on the other hand, in my case, has delivered exactly what it promised.

Seems I was wrong, they're passing over 80000 a week (that was the last figure that was released). They've since recruited ex forces communication workers to speed up the process. I would expect 100000 a week soon if it's not already at that now.
