Internet provider BT has confirmed that it will soon be offering an ultrafast 300Mbps 'fibre to the premises' (FTTP) service for consumers who require extra bandwidth.

The service will initially be available within 50 exchange areas where FTTP infrastructure has already been deployed.

The company says that the launch of the Infinity 300Mbps FTTP service will see BT offer the fastest speeds of all the major ISPs, with 300Mbps downstream and 20Mbps upstream speeds. BT says the speeds are up to 40 times faster than those achievable through the use of copper.

Existing FTTP customers will also be able to upgrade to the faster speeds by upgrading to the £50 Unlimited package, which comes without any usage limits and is free from traffic management.

David McDonald, general manager of consumer broadband for BT, said: 'The new BT Home Hub 5 and the introduction of 300Mbps FTTP show how we are obsessed with providing an amazing broadband experience. BT has always had the edge here, but we are now leaping ahead of the competition.'
