Fastest fibre speeds as standard
Consumers can now benefit from faster broadband connections after BT today launched its new BT Infinity 1 service offering speeds up to 52Mbps, a faster standard fibre service than Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin*.
The new BT Infinity 1 up to 52Mbps service offers customers a faster connection, allowing them to do more things at once on the internet, including downloading an HD film up to 32% faster than with 38Mbps.
With speeds of up to 52Mbps customers can watch their favourite team in UHD on BT Sport whilst other members of the household are gaming, shopping or watching something else on their phones/tablets.
David McDonald, director of broadband, TV and sport bundles, BT Consumer, said:
“Our research has shown that it’s what you can actually do with your broadband that matters most to consumers. We want to give them a faster speed as standard so that everyone in a household can be online at the same time and still enjoy watching their favourite YouTube or HD content without buffering or bickering over whose turn it is.The new, faster BT Infinity 1 service is about giving consumers a premium broadband experience as standard, allowing them to enjoy all the digital world has to offer.”
The BT Infinity 1 up to 52Mbps service is available to new customers for £10 per month for the first 12 months on a 12 month contract.
All BT Broadband customers get unlimited access to more than five million BT Wi-fi hotspots across the UK, ensuring they can stay connected when they are out and about.
