Be Broadband plans to move into the fibre-optic internet market in the near future, its Managing Director has revealed.
Tom Williams noted that although the internet service provider (ISP) has commented little on the development of the technology previously, it acknowledges that fibre-optic broadband is the future.
As such, the ISP will be taking steps to offer broadband deals via the fibre-optic wholesale market in the near future, he claimed.
"We really want to offer you a fibre solution. We want to keep providing faster and faster speeds," Mr Williams commented.
"If we do this, then there's likely to be some initial restrictions on what we can offer in terms of speed, support, and the general customer experience. But, for many of you, it will be faster."
Earlier this month, Mr Williams told the company blog that Be's landline service will be launched in September, allowing the company to offer new broadband bundles.
He said the ISP's phone service would offer the same quality user experience as its flagship broadband offering.
