BT: free fibre optic upgrade to broadband customers

BT rolls out free upgrade to fibre optics offer to broadband customers

BT broadband customers subscribing to a bundle of broadband and calls are eligible to be upgraded to BT Infinity - their fibre optic service - at no additional cost when it is available in their area.

BT's Consumer division's managing director, Jon Petter said, "Fibre is the future of broadband and BT is raising the speed and standard for customers nationwide. BT Infinity is head and shoulders above other services when it comes to value."

"We are the only company offering you an upgrade to fibre for no extra monthly cost and the only company to offer free line installation across all new bundles."

Techies will remember though that UK's Adverstising Standard Agency (ASA) asked the phone company to pull their ad which claimed the service offered "instant internet". The ASA felt the 40Mbps package ad was misleading.

BT has not given a specific date by which the fibre optic package will be rolled out to the country, only saying that it is likely to be before 2015.
