Openreach will commence a full pilot of fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband at the end of this week, it has been revealed.

The firm, responsible for maintaining BT’s national telecoms network, said the recent UK technical trial of 220Mb broadband was a success.

And as such, Openreach is proceeding with the full pilot, as planned, between March 1st and May 31st 2013.

Ultra-fast FTTP broadband services will be available to order in all parts of the UK currently covered by BT's full-fibre network.

"During the pilot, Openreach will not be charging for the product rental," the firm stated.

"Any other charges - for example connection, managed install, missed appointments - will continue to be charged as per the published pricing for GEA-FTTP."

Openreach explained that the charges for 220Mb FTTP broadband are currently being finalised.

These will be released closer to the launch date, subject to the successful conclusion of the pilot, the firm stated.
