    BT TRIALS PROVE POTENTIAL FOR ULTRAFAST BROADBAND OVER COPPER


    Company creates new research lab at Adastral Park

    BT today unveiled the results of new field trials that show 'ultrafast' broadband - with combined downstream and upstream speeds of up to one Gigabit per second (1000 Mbps) - can be delivered via a mix of fibre and copper.
    Previously it was thought such speeds would require a dedicated business linei or a fibre optic cable to be laid all the way from a telephone exchange to a premises, a relatively expensive, disruptive and time consuming process.
    BT, which is due to open a new ultrafast broadband lab at its Adastral Park R&D centre in Ipswich, says it is greatly encouraged by the potential of Fibre To The Distribution Point (FTTdp) ‘G.FAST’ technology - where fibre is instead rolled out to telephone poles or junction (footway) boxes located close to homes and businesses.
    During the G.FAST trials, downstream speeds of around 800Mbps were achieved over a 19m length of copper, combined with upstream speeds of more than 200Mbps. Impressive speeds of around 700/200Mbps were also achieved over longer lines of 66m, a distance that encompasses around 80 per cent of such connections. As well as delivering ultrafast speeds, the technology also offers the flexibility to tailor the allocation of the total 1Gbps speed according to a users’ needs ....... etc etc
