BT is to increase the maximum speeds available on its FTTP network from 330MBps to 1GBps.
The operator’s Openreach business is launching two new products next month to showcase the new speeds.
A 500MBps product, which has upload speeds of 165 MBps, and a 1GBps offering, with upload speeds of 220MBps, will be available on 6 December.
The 1GBps product will be offered at a wholesale price of £80 per calendar month.
Openreach said the new offerings would be “of particular interest” to small and medium businesses.
Its FTTP network, which passes 327,000 homes and businesses, is set to double in size over the next 12 months and reach up to two million premises by the end of 2020.
Clive Selley, Openreach CEO, said: “We’re committed to taking the UK from being a superfast to an ultrafast nation, and whilst we’re extending the reach of our Fibre-to-the-Premises network, we’re also boosting the speed and variety of the services we can offer over it.
“We’ve been working closely with our wholesale communications provider customers to develop these new ultrafast products, and we expect the new higher speed services will be of particular interest to small and medium businesses.
“This is another example of how our mixed technology approach is getting the fastest possible speeds to the largest number of people in the shortest possible timeframe.”

It said the speed was the new entry level for its business fibre broadband service.
