• DMSL sees broadband sales rise following BT’s ultrafast news

        • DMSL has reported a positive response to BT’s recent announcement of plans to accelerate the roll-out of ultrafast services, with broadband sales reaching ‘record heights’ in June.

          BT’s Openreach division has stated its ambition to deliver ultrafast broadband speeds to 12 million premises by 2020, using a mixture of G.fast and Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) technology. John Carter, Managing Director of DMSL believes that the details of BT’s ultrafast vision for the UK have spurred the channel into action and resulted in a significant uplift in activity.

          He said, “there is no question that the SMB market is very excited and interested in BT’s ultrafast services and that’s really boosted the level of enquiries coming into us and our partners.  We achieved record sales of BT broadband last month and we will now be looking to build on that momentum.”

          Openreach announced last month that the first eight areas in the country to benefit from a new FTTP product specifically designed for SMBs, which will offer ultrafast speeds of up to 1Gbps.  This news, according to John, has raised awareness of Openreach’s Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) technology which delivers superfast services and is available to more than 25 million premises across the country.

          John added, “the FTTC product is excellent and has helped deliver faster broadband speeds across the UK, with Ofcom saying that the UK’s broadband consistently outperforms other European countries on key measurements such as availability, speed and, most importantly for resellers, take-up. We are seeing some very strong results and with the continued effort BT is putting into driving awareness of its plans for the roll-out of ultra-fast services, we’re expecting more records to be broken.”
