UK Internet provider Virgin Media is going to roll out its fibre optic broadband over British Telecom poles.
BT must still be smarting since Ofcom forced the telco to unbundle its monopolised loop for the competition. Now, years in the making, other companies are finally getting the chance to roll out fibre optics after doing the same with standard broadband connections. According to the Financial Times, Virgin Media will be putting up a 'superfast' broadband service and will be doing it over BT telephone poles.
