BT Cuts Wholesale 330Mbps FTTP Cost by 37%

BT Openreach will slash the wholesale rental price of its ultra-fast 330Mbps Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) service by 37%.  The wholesale service currently costs £60 a month but it will fall to £38 a month from June 2013. The company also announced the lower price will apply to the new Fibre-to-the-Premises on Demand (FoD) service that Openreach will launch and begin to make available in Spring 2013.

In addition, BT said the 330 Mbps service will be available across the whole of BT's fibre footprint for the first time and not just from those exchanges that currently offer FTTP.

As Openreach has previously indicated, CPs will be charged a distance based construction charge for FoD due to the extra work involved in providing a direct fibre connection.

"Our fibre plans are going very well. Our deployment is one of the fastest in the world and our services are proving very popular with the public," stated Mike Galvin, Managing Director NGA, Openreach.
