BT Infinity areas (BT.com/infinity) now cover 6 million UK homes & businesses with that figure expected to leap to 10 million by August 2012.
The news follows an announcement by BT that it is bringing forward around £300 million pounds worth of investment in order to give two thirds of UK premises access to its fibre optic broadband network (BT Infinity) by the end of 2014 – one year early.
BT Infinity provides super-fast broadband speeds up to 40Meg from just £7.50 per month and includes unlimited weekend phone calls to UK landlines and 0845/0870 numbers.
The headline 40Meg broadband speeds are expected to double to up to 80Meg speeds by the spring of next year.
Commenting on the announcement, the CEO of BT Group, Ian Livingston said: “Our roll-out of fibre broadband is one of the fastest in the world and so it is great to be ahead of what was an already challenging schedule”.
Livingstone added: “The acceleration reflects the success of the programme to date and is testament to the hard work and innovation of our people. Thousands of our engineers are busy installing fibre broadband across the UK at an astonishing pace”.
