Leading internet service provider (ISP) BT is continuing to innovate – the firm has just announced plans to offer 110Mb broadband download speeds.

The firm's Openreach arm, which offers network access to rival ISPs on a wholesale basis, says the new fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) solution will offer the capability from March 2011.

A spokesperson for BT said the FTTP service would offer a 100Mb downloads as standard, with a peak rate of 110Mb.

They told PC Pro that guaranteed upload speeds of 15Mb would also be provided, increasing the appeal of the fibre-optic broadband service to UK firms.

"Communications providers advertising 100Mb, that's exactly what consumers are going to get," the spokesman said. "You're going to get 100Mb, it's not an 'up to' service."

Earlier this year, BT launched its new Infinity service, which offers download speeds of up to 40Mb to home and business users.

The firm has continued to rollout fibre-optic broadband across the UK in recent months, upgrading local telephone exchanges to support the technology.
