BT Openreach building a 300 Mbps open network

Gigaom - The U.K. will get 300 Mbps fiber to the home connections available on a wholesale basis. And that, my friends, is the sound of broadband supremacy passing us by in the U.S. Sure, we’re aware that Japan, Korea and the Netherlands all have gigabit broadband, while most of us languish with cable or even DSL connections that deliver a nationwide average of 5.1 Mbps according to Akamai. But now, the U.K. is trumping us with the announcement of an open 300 Mbps network.

The story is too old to be commented.
