Fibre for the local loop! sign now

BT are constantly on about their network upgrades and capacity upgrages which will make the internet faster for eveyone (so they say).

The real part of their network is known as the 'Local Loop' and is what connects all you internet users to your local exchange which is run and maintained by BT (Openreach).

The purpose of this thread is to see how many people beleive that BT really need to upgrade the parts of their network which have a direct effect on the consumers.

This being the 20+ year old Local Loop which is most commonly made of old degrading copper.

Who thinks that BT need to please the consumer whilst also future-proofing their network and business by upgrading the local loop to high bandwidth optical fibre cable? Even if its only to the street cabinets.

    in my opinion this is a great idea called future proofing rather than just going half cocked and thinking this 21cn is going to do much more than waste money longterm.

    They better do it, I don't honestly know how they think they can get anyway with developing Broadband by sticking to infrastructure and copper that is 20 years old! It's pathetic BT.

    For future-proofing the UK, so we are on terms with other nations, this has to be signed.
