BT is to open a broadband shop in Whitchurch near Cardiff this week which will allow people to come in and try out its broadband services. A second store is to open next week in Muswell Hill in north London. Some may recognise the locations, and that is because both stores are located in the areas where BT has been piloting it's new fibre-to-the-cabinet based 40meg broadband services.
"The BT Retail Super-fast Broadband shop in Whitchurch, is the first showcase of its kind to hit Britain's high streets, with another shop planned to open in Muswell Hill, London, next week.
"The showcase shows local people what Super-fast Broadband, currently being trialled in their areas, is all about and enables them to see demonstrations of a range of home and business applications that will enhance their lives."Matthew Dearden, Marketing Director at BT Retail
Showing people what this new technology is capable of may be a new way to get more customers to sign up or upgrade their connection to a faster service. Readers should remember, that BT aren't the only provider who are able to offer services using the new fibre-to-the-cabinet technology- AAISP connected the first FTTC business user towards the end of July.
