Be to boost broadband coverage

6 Mar 2008

O2-owned British broadband provider Be has announced that it will increase its network coverage by 15% over the next four months. By June 2008 Be hopes it will have unbundled an additional 400 telephone exchanges (taking its total to 1,245), giving it ADSL2+ coverage of 67% of the UK population. Oli White, Head of Marketing at Be said: ‘These 400 new exchanges will mean that over 67% of the UK population will be able to experience faster speeds with ADSL2+. But it doesn’t stop there; we are already testing new technologies that will enhance not only the network but our speed.’
