Broadband provider BT has selected a strategic partner to support its efforts to improve internet coverage across the UK.

The company's Openreach division has signed a deal which will see it deploy the Hi-Focus multi-service access node (MSA) from ECI Telecom as part of its nationwide rollout of fibre-optic broadband.

In addition, BT is also making use of ECI's 1Net framework to ensure optimised migration to next-generation networks, including increased scalability and improved revenue growth.

Steve Robertson, Chief Executive Officer of BT Openreach, said the partnership has helped the firm improve offerings for communications providers and guarantee equivalency to customers.

He added: "ECI's offerings are in line with our vision of a straightforward, more integrated and competitive network, simplifying management and supporting the optimisation of our next-generation access network in an environmentally-friendly and responsible way."

BT has also confirmed that it has installed fibre-optic broadband technology in areas including Greater Manchester, Walsall and Bristol in recent times.
