BT Business has completed a Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) installation to a UK-based series of office units.

The super-fast FTTP broadband service is capable of delivering download speeds of up to 100Mbps and up to 15Mbps upload speeds

For users, this can open up a whole new way of working as it allows them to take advantage of services like high definition VoIP and videoconferencing, as well as sending large documents more quickly, running multiple cloud applications simultaneously and uploading to file transfer sites without noticeable slowing of the connection.

Part of a £2.5 billion investment by BT to deploy fibre broadband to two thirds of UK premises by the end of 2014, the BT Infinity service is installed by specialist BT engineers.

The beneficiaries of this new super-fast roll-out is the MK Community Foundation, which has its offices in the unit along with other local voluntary sector services, including Citizen's Advice Bureau, Community Action MK and Women & Work.

Stephen Miles, building manager, Acorn House, said: "We have always strived to ensure our tenants can access the latest technologies as it's central to the efficient running of their vital community services. Offering super-fast broadband speeds sets us apart from other local providers and is another benefit for our clients who use our conference and meeting room facilities."
