BT – two thirds of UK premises to have fibre optic broadband by 2014

Good news for those of you plagued by crawling broadband speeds

BT has announced that two thirds of UK premises will have access to fibre optic broadband by 2014 – one year ahead of its previous target, thanks to a cool £300 million cash injection and an extra 520 new engineers.

The news will come as a relief for gadgeteers still stuck with copper wire broadband which can be slow and temperamental, depending on exchange distances.

Here’s to a bright future where tech-heads can gorge themselves on gigabytes of data to their hearts' (and hard drives') content.
