LONDON -- BT today revealed the details of the latest phase of its £2.5 billion commercial roll-out of fibre broadband. A further 1.2million premises will be passed with the technology under this phase, bringing the total footprint announced by the company to date to around 19 million premises. Openreach, BT’s local network business, will upgrade 99 new exchanges with the technology before or during Spring next year. These exchanges serve approximately 600,000 premises which are mostly spread across Scotland, the Midlands, the North East and North West of England. Due to the current network topography, and the economics of deployment, it is likely that some premises within selected exchange areas will not initially be able to access fibre-based broadband. Openreach is considering alternative solutions for these locations. An additional 600,000 premises will also gain access to fibre broadband as a result of additional ‘infill’ work in previously announced areas. BT has now confirmed around 1,700 exchange areas across the UK which will make up the bulk of its commercial fibre footprint. The company is now beginning to identify additional exchanges that it will enable with the assistance of its Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) partners. BT Group plc

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.
