has unveiled plans to create a similar superfast FTTH broadband network for five million homes and businesses in rural Britain to bridge the digital divide between city and country.
The network, which is being built using Cisco hardware and in collaboration with Virgin Media and TalkTalk, will offer 1Gbps symmetrical bandwidth from day one, with the potential to go to 10Gbps and beyond in the future. Positioning the network as a direct competitor to BT Openreach, the network will also be open to all ISPs on a wholesale basis, not just Virgin Media and TalkTalk, who have already announced their intention to access wholesale products via the new network to provide next generation services to customers in remote parts of the UK.
