BT needs governmental support to bring FTTX to 17 million homes BT needs governmental support to bring FTTX to 17 million homesBT needs governmental support to bring FTTX to 17 million homes

 

16 November 2010

BT may be making continual progress with its Fiber to the X (FTTX) network rollout, but the incumbent carrier believes it could reach about 90% of the country's homes by 2017 if it could tap into ?830 million ($1.3 billion) in funds the government will make available, reports the Financial Times.
Ian Livingston, BT's CEO, stated that it would be able to reach its FTTX deployment goal if it could get access to a piece of the TV license fee slated to support rural broadband deployments.
While BT is spending ?2.5 billion ($4.01 billion) to make its FTTX network, which includes a mixture of Fiber to the Cabinet with copper-based VDSL2 and Fiber to the Premises (FTTP), to 16 million homes and businesses by 2015, it won't extend the network beyond that mark if it doesn't get some government financial support.
