BTopenworld said today that it has extended the reach of its ADSL services to bring broadband to otherwise unreachable areas.
Extended Reach (ER) ADSL means that people who live further away from an exchange can now get a broadband connection. The technology has upped the distance allowed from 3.5km to 5.5km.
According to BT, this now means that around 90 per cent of the UK currently living in an enabled exchange area can get access to ADSL services.
There will be no change in download speeds for ER ADSL, but BT said that upload speeds would be highly variable, ranging from 64Kbps to 250Kbps.
Tony Harris, senior vice president at BTopenworld, said: "ER ADSL represents great news for people who want a high speed internet connection but who currently live or work just beyond the present range of BTopenworld's broadband services."
Pricing for the service remains at £39.99 per month plus £150 for initial installation.
