While customers that take part in the trial won’t receive the gigabit speeds (combined upload/download) BT demonstrated in its Adastral Park research and development center, they will see an impressive 330Mbps down and 30Mbps up. Those speeds actually match Openreach’s current FTTP on Demand product (which is likely why it’s getting an overhaul), and are faster than Virgin’s top-tier 152Mbps service. – Mark Walton, Ars Technica
