BT has increased the maximum speed of their entry level BT Infinity broadband service from 38 Mbps to 52 Mbps.
According to the company this makes the top speed on the entry level BT Infinity 32% faster than its previous top speed.
David McDonald, director of broadband, TV and sport bundles, BT Consumer, said: “Our research has shown that it’s what you can actually do with your broadband that matters most to consumers. We want to give them a faster speed as standard so that everyone in a household can be online at the same time and still enjoy watching their favourite YouTube or HD content without buffering or bickering over whose turn it is.The new, faster BT Infinity 1 service is about giving consumers a premium broadband experience as standard, allowing them to enjoy all the digital world has to offer.”
In order to get the new faster 52 Mbps speed you will need to have received the top speed of 38 Mbps before, if you are receiving a lower speed, say 20 or 25 Mbps then you will apparently not benefit from the increased speed.
