NGA services sweet spot BT Global Services UK access scenarios

10 © British Telecommunications plc March 201010 Key points BT operates in a highly competitive broadband market where consumers have an extensive choice of services with some of the lowest prices in the world Our open platforms, allow all service providers in the UK to access our new fibre technology through their existing systems. We also bring our own services, at infrastructure, wholesale and retail levels, to the market through Openreach, BT Wholesale, BT Retail and BT Global Services Broadband has boosted the UK economy in recent years, becoming an essential part of our customers’ lives. In 2008 BT announced that it would invest £1.5bn to make next generation fibre-based broadband – super-fast broadband - available to at least 40% of the UK, some 10m homes and businesses, by summer 2012 Both our fibre solutions are already live in the UK and this allows us to be highly confident of both the performance levels and deployment commitments Our upstream speeds, at up to 10Mb/s, will be the fastest in the UK, more than 6 times faster than Virgin Media’s fastest service* BT has been selected as preferred partner to work with Northern Ireland’s Department of Enterprise Trade and Investment on a regional next generation broadband programme. We are also in discussion with a number of UK regional authorities on their next generation broadband plans *Virgin’s 50Mb broadband offers upload speeds of up to 1.5Mb
