The limits to Infinity

One of the curious side effects of BT’s current campaign to get us to reveal our pent-up desire for super-fast broadband, otherwise known as BT Infinity, is that we now know that Infinity stops at 1000.
That’s the minimum number of homes that BT is prepared to serve fibre-based broadband to. That’s what Downtime gathers from the terms and conditions of BT’s Race to Infinity to find the five exchanges most worthy of being fibre-enabled by 2012. If your village doesn’t have 1000 lines, fergeddaboudit.
 Downtime hopes that Bill Murphy, boss of BT’s next generation access programme, can morph into Buzz Lightyear and take us all beyond Infinity.
