BT has announced that availability of its new Gfast services will be extended to 500,000 premises across the UK. The roll-out of BT Gfast services is planned to cover around ten million premises in the UK so this announcement marks an important step towards that target.
Gfast is a cutting-edge technology which allows us to deliver Ultrafast speeds over existing copper lines. It builds on the existing BT network, so means that they are able to upgrade areas very quickly with minimal disruption and cost. Gfast will evolve over time to offer even faster speeds of up to 1Gbps.
The 26 locations being added are:
Portsmouth North End
Whitchurch, South Glamorgan
Availability information will continue to be updated in our online checker for FTTP, FTTC and Gfast services.
