How British Telecom/Openreach moved from FTTN to FTTP
Tuesday, 13th October 2020
This event is fully booked or has passed.
The Coalition Government’s Multi-Technology Model for the NBN relied heavily on the experience of British Telecom’s wholesale subsidiary, Openreach’s, experience with its FTTN.
But a lot has changed in the UK market since the Coalition’s policy was formed in 2013.
This presentation will look at how the UK came to its current position where Openreach has plans to cover 70% of households with FTTP by the ‘mid to late 2020s’ after halting its G.Fast rollout.
This will not be a detailed technical presentation – rather it will look at the competition and economic policies that have driven private sector investment in fibre rather than risking taxpayer’s dollars on subsidising urban broadband rollouts.
