BT speed boost hailed by ISPA

ISPA welcomes increase in BT broadband speeds

The ISPA has praised the recent broadband speed boost from BT.

BT's decision to double its fibre optic broadband upstream and downstream speeds has been praised by the Internet Service Providers' Association (ISPA).

As of yesterday (April 12th 2012), new customers who sign up to BT Infinity 2 will receive maximum download and upload rates of 76Mbps and 19Mbps respectively.

Existing subscribers can also take advantage of the deal by either moving to Infinity from a different BT service or agreeing to start a new contract at no extra cost.

Commenting on the move, a spokesman from the ISPA said the organisation is in favour of network improvement plans from any of its members and hailed the benefits that BT's announcement will bring to businesses and consumers.

The organisation claimed super-fast broadband access represents a "tremendous opportunity" for firms, particularly new businesses and small and medium-sized enterprises.

Investment in broadband infrastructure by members and the government should be the focus between now and 2015, rather than concentrating on speed increases, the spokesman insisted.

He added: "There should instead be a target-based approach, with [greater] emphasis on ensuring consumers and businesses are able to access the services they require."
