Internet service provider (ISP) BT has announced plans to double the broadband speeds provided by its Infinity fibre network.

Announcing the latest quarterly results – which revealed a 162,000 increase in broadband deal subscriptions during Q1– BT Chief Executive Ian Livingston said the ISP is aiming to deliver 80Mb fibre broadband by 2012.

At the end of March, BT was delivering fibre-to-the-cabinet broadband deals – capable of achieving 40Mb download speeds – to 144,000 customers nationwide.

Mr Livingston explained that the number of homes able to take advantage of BT Infinity broadband is increasing all the time.

"Our rollout of super-fast broadband is one of the most rapid in the world, passing an average of 80,000 additional premises each week," he stated.

"We have plans to roughly double the speed of our fibre-to-the-cabinet based service in 2012."

BT is currently investing £2.5 billion upgrading its national internet infrastructure to support fibre broadband deals.
