BT boosts fibre-to-the-home broadband speed to 160Mbps http://micronassociates.net/hi-TECH/2012/10/28/bt-boosts-fibre-to-the-home-broadband-speed-to-160mbps/ micron associates technology blog BT Retail has boosted the speed of its top-of-the-range BT Infinity broadband package from 100Mbps to 160Mbps.BT Infinity 160Mb is a fibre-to-the-premises (FTTH) broadband service, and is currently only available from a limited number of exchanges, Micron Associates researched.

A recent report by the FTTH Council Europe revealed that the UK has the lowest penetration of FTTH in Europe, with only 0.05% of households connected published in Micron Associates.
