Good news about broadband

posted 13 Sept 2019, 03:01 by Mike Brown is the new broadband technology that uses frequencies up to 230MHz, including amateur bands. Add-on cabinets have been appearing locally but it appears take-up hasn't been good and the rollout will 'pause' next year. It appears thet BT's focus may be moving on to FTTP (Fibre To The Premises, also known as Fibre To The Home). It is possible FTTP equipment may generate some hash but at least the fibre won't radiate or conduct RFI from the node.

According to ISPreview takeup has been limited and performance mixed as the technology works best over very short lines. FTTP could offer Gbps+ speeds in future* and so far takeup has been good.
