Funding provided to local councils for broadband infrastructure
BT Openreach is reaching out to apartment owners in a bid to promote its ambitious plans of 300Mbps boradband line that will bring super-fast bandwidth for residents.
Openreach is said to be making all-out efforts to make residents and landlords come together into a pilot project aimed at providing better broadband.
Certain apartments will be chosen on deployment dynamics and cooperation of landloards, and would see a line of up to 300 mbps by the end of the year, according to BT.
The scheme is part of a bigger vision to provide super-fast internet for all UK households by 2014, with monetary estimates going up to £2.5bn.
The UK government is offering monetary support to local councils to help with the finances of the mega-project.
However, the BDUK funding will stand cancelled if there are no contracts in place for the super-fast broadband by the end of the year, according to cultural secretary Jeremy Hunt.
About 1,000 buildings have been spotted for the pilot project.
Advanced trials of several 300Mbps FTTP connections are on way, according to BT Openreach, which was currently looking for registering Canary Wharf area landlords and residents alike.
