New BT broadband service to transmit across VHF

BT's Openreach plans to use the polluting technology, that transmits across the VHF spectrum as well as HF, to deliver new broadband services

Two new broadband services are being offered providing 152 Mbps and 314 Mbps. BT has chosen to deliver these by over legacy copper wires rather than adopting the modern approach of Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) which causes no RF pollution issues.

BT Openreach currently uses VDSL-2 which transmits across the HF spectrum up to 17.660 MHz and has caused considerable interference to radio amateurs. will dramatically increase the RF spectrum affected by transmitting all the way up to 106 MHz.
