LONDON -- BT today said it will slash the wholesale rental price of its ultra-fast 330Mbps Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) service by 37 per cent.

This service, which Openreach provides to Communications Providers (CPs), currently costs £60 a month but it will fall to £38 a month from June 2013. The company also announced the lower price will apply to the new Fibre-to-the-Premises on Demand (FoD) service that Openreach will launch and begin to make available in Spring 2013.

This service, which will offer downstream speeds of 330Mbps and upstream speeds of 30Mbps, will further future proof the network. This is because ultra-fast FTTP speeds will be available across the whole of BT's fibre footprint for the first time and not just from those exchanges that currently offer FTTP.

FoD is expected to be of most interest to certain small and medium sized enterprises who may wish to take advantage of the faster speeds on offer. Consumers and businesses can already access speeds of up to 80Mbps via Fibre-to-the-Cabinet services or much greater speeds via business services such as Ethernet.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
