BT Openreach to offer 300 mbps broadband in UK

The UK will get 300 mbps broadband speeds next spring. BT Openreach, which manages backend telecom infrastructure, will deliver these speeds through fibre connections to customer premises. Customers with existing copper connections will also be able to get their speed bumped up to 80 mbps. This will further improve the UK’s 10th rank in the global ICT index through increases in both the penetration of broadband (currently at 31 per 100 people) and in the highest possible downstream speeds (currently at 41 mbps).
