1. BT plan to upgrade "up to 80% of their copper network to deliver connections of up to 20Mbps by the end of the year?"
Our question to BT: how many up to's can you get in one sentence? What do these "up tos" mean, after Ofcom has told telcos to stop using the term? What precisely are you trying to achieve? Both separately and together, with your Up Tos? For consumers? For your network? For Ofcom's plans and regulations? IN REALITY?
2. When you announce FTTC connectivity to market towns, are you planning to connect 100% of cabinets in those areas, wherever existing infrastructure lies? Are up to 100% FTTC areas 100% connected, and to what? How do you define when an area is "FTTP connected?" Do you think you can make it up by connecting one house from one cab = FTTP from that street cabinet?
