The work Openreach is undertaking to upgrade BT's broadband network marks "something of a revolution" for the sector, it has been claimed.

Joe Garner, who will join the infrastructure provider as Chief Executive Officer in February, said Openreach is making a "massive investment" in high-speed connectivity.

He claimed faster broadband connections will "greatly benefit" people and businesses in the UK, allowing them to do much more online.

Mr Garner - who is to replace Liv Garfield in the top job at Openreach - praised the company's engineers for already delivering "so much" for UK broadband users.

"It is my ambition to build on this work," he stated.

"I intend to focus on customer service, continued innovation and maintaining fair and equal access for all."

As of January 2014, Openreach - which is responsible for BT’s local access network - passed 17 million premises with fibre broadband.

This figure is increasing all the time, ensuring more homes and businesses can take advantage of BT's super-fast broadband rollout.
