UK tests 10-Gbps home broadband

The British broadband operator Hyperoptic announced that the UK has conducted tests for broadband speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second (Gbps) in a home for the first time.

The UK's firms are looking to roll out full-fiber technology across the European country, BBC added.

It is necessary to introduce higher broadband speeds in a bid to cope with the country’s needs, head of Ofcom Sharon White said.

"The amount of internet data used by people in the UK is growing by around half every year. So we'll increasingly need full-fibre broadband services like this to provide faster, more reliable connections and capacity to our homes and offices,” White added.
