Fibre products from O2/Be may not appear until 2013
The BE network blog comes bearing bad news for the various BEings who are waiting for the provider to start selling a FTTC/P based service. It seems while the company may be able to provide a limited fibre based service during 2012, a widespread roll-out based on the GEA services from Openreach looks unlikely.
With the large providers such as BT, TalkTalk and Sky all with a fibre based service and a good number of other providers too, provides like Orange and O2/Be are playing a dangerous game if they delay too long in offering the service. This is particularly the case for Be which has a loyal following, but as they experience the faster services at friends homes, their loyalty will be stretched.
