BT to trial one gigabit broadband

BT has announced plans to trial one gigabit fibre broadband in Suffolk and add 40 rural market towns to its current fibre roll-out. The market towns earmarked for broadband upgrades have not yet be named but BT said it intended to begin offering services from late 2011. It said the move would support the UK government's plan to create the best broadband network in Europe by 2015.

The government is set to provide £830m for firms willing to offer fast broadband services in rural areas, which it will provide "over the course of this parliament and the next".

It comes as regulator Ofcom reveals that less than 1% of UK homes have a super-fast broadband connection.

I'm not sure what is the point of a 1Gb test when the vast majority of the country struggles to get 1Mb. I suppose it's a good PR exercise though.  :gum:
