BT not going with FTTH

British Telecom is insisting that rolling out ADSL2+ over the existing copper in the last mile is sufficient for its consumers' usage habits--the move puts an end to speculation of a fiber-to-the-home rollout. At the DigiWorld 2006 Summit in Montpellier, France BT's Chief Executive of BT Wholesale Paul Reynolds said he does not believe there is a business case for FTTH: "We'll be launching ADSL2+ next year, which gives speeds of up to 24Mbps and will comfortably support customers'" immediate needs, which include IPTV. Reynolds said FTTH would not bring any additional revenue.
