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.
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.
Yes, pretty much that. Last month's FTTP press release said 7 million homes could now get FTTC, 10 million by the end of 2012, 13 million by next year (overtaking VM) and 16 million (two thirds of premises) by the end of 2014, chopping a year off BT's original rollout schedule.
Government are going to have to stump up more cash though to get beyond the 67% fibre coverage as that's the point at which BT have said it becomes commercially uneconomical to continue, I think.
Also depending on the exchange, some lines will only achieve a full maximum with the right router, like on longer lines it will tend to be the Business Hub that performs the best. They need to do something about the SNR dropping at night on longer lines, because that can cause huge problems, which are very tricky to fix. The only viable way I can see is switching everyone on longer lines on the exchange to business grade systems.
