BT gets fibre optic broadband support from Huawei
BT has received assistance from telecoms solutions provider Huawei in the rollout of its fibre optic broadband proposition across the country.

Locations throughout the UK are currently being connected to the high-speed broadband network, with BT most recently announcing that more than 11,000 homes and businesses in Tettenhall will be hooked up to the infrastructure in the coming weeks.

According to Huawei, it has supported this deployment by providing BT with a number of access products that are designed to reduce maintenance and operation costs.

Chief executive of BT Openreach Steve Robertson noted that the two companies have had a "strong" working relationship for a number of years.

"We are pleased to extend this further by choosing Huawei as one of our strategic partners to help us deploy Next Generation Access on a national scale," he added.

Mr Robertson went on to state that BT is planning to invest £2.5 billion in fibre optic cable broadband technology.
