BT launches Ethernet Fibre to the Premise (FTTP) solution for Wholesale customers

 BT has launched an Ethernet FTTP solution for Wholesale partners that connects from the premise to the nearest Ethernet node, enabling greater bandwidth at ultra-fast speeds.

Businesses can now access network speeds of up to 1Gb, with ultra-low latency that never slows down, no matter how far they are from the exchange. Bandwidth is fast, flexible, scalable and uncontended. This is particularly attractive to mid-larger businesses that rely on quick access to cloud applications, users can also download and send large files or explore links to other sites.

This latest release offers SoGEA (Single Order Generic Ethernet Access) and FTTP on both BT’s Broadband and Ethernet portfolios.

Paul Beacham, Senior Manager, BT Wholesale, said: “As the UK prepares for the withdrawal of the analogue PSTN network in 2025 and begins to migrate towards fully digitised networks, businesses need future-proofed connectivity solutions that support their digital transformation journeys and their demand for greater bandwidth and speed. BT is at the forefront of this technology shift, bringing the market-leading Ethernet FTTP solution to the Wholesale market to join our full range of all-IP access solutions available – all underpinned by the best fixed network in the UK.”

“This announcement also reinforces BT Group’s ongoing investment in full fibre. We’re committed to growing our FTTP coverage across the UK and are accelerating our FTTP build to reach 20 million premises by the mid-to-late 2020s. With Ethernet FTTP, we’re responding to increasing customer needs for network speeds and reliability, supporting that demand better than any other network provider.”
