The UK's broadband infrastructure is not yet prepared for connection speeds of up to 100Mb, one expert has claimed.

A representative from Quintain Estates, a group which offers fibre optic broadband speeds of up to 32Mb, believes that providing ultra-high speeds to British homes is in the pipeline, but may not be ready for some time.

According to Managing Director of the group, James Saunders, the problem is that many existing servers are "tuned" to download rates of just 4Mb to 8Mb.

He commented: "The market's not really geared up yet for 100Mb in a residential context.

"What we can't control is the speed that other people can serve content that you can download from their servers."

The news comes on the back of specialist business broadband provider SAQ unveiling a raft of new ADSL2+ products which offer connection speeds of up to 96Mb.
