BT has linked up with Chinese telecommunications firm Huawei as it continues to roll out high-speed broadband technology around the UK.

The internet service provider will use Huawei's optical access and transmission technology to help develop more diversified high-bandwidth services.

According to Steve Robertson, Chief Executive of BT Openreach, this should help the firm deliver improved service levels to customers across the country.

He commented: "BT and Huawei have had a strong relationship for several years - we are pleased to extend this further by choosing Huawei as one of our strategic partners to help us deploy next-generation access on a national scale as part of BT's £2.5 billion investment in fibre technology."

Chengdong Yu, President of Huawei Europe, said the firm was proud to contribute to the construction of BT's pan-UK fibre infrastructure.

"Huawei has extensive experience in designing and delivering optical access solutions around the world," he stated.
