Super-fast broadband progress welcomed in Oxford

Homes and businesses in Oxford are set to benefit from broadband improvements as BT and Virgin Media continue to roll out super-fast connections.
Super-fast broadband progress welcomed in Oxford
Broadband experts in Oxford have welcomed plans to upgrade the city's internet connections from BT and Virgin Media.

BT has said its fibre optic broadband service Infinity will arrive in the region by March next year, while Virgin Media's new 100Mb/s product is also expected to reach the city at some stage, the Oxford Mail reports.

Grant Blank of the Oxford Internet Institute told the newspaper that comparing broadband to other internet services is "now equivalent to the difference between a paved highway and a rutted track to your front door".

He suggested that internet users in Oxford will benefit from the quicker speeds because "a lot of the applications people are now using require extremely fast access".

BT has installed super-fast connections in Didcot and Bicester, with the exchanges at Botley and Wantage also due to be upgraded by the end of December 2010.

Infinity provides download speeds of up to 40Mb/s and is being rolled out in regions across the country.
