Next generation access – NGA

September 28, 2007

Next generation access (NGA) broadband networks take broadband to the next level – offering much faster download speeds via increased fibre optic cabling, cable network upgrades or even copper wire upgrades.

The drawback is that for the UK to benefit from NGA broadband networks, telecoms companies will have to make massive investments in their networks, over several years. However without such developments, the UK will increasing lag behind its neighbours when it comes to broadband and online developments.

Some other countries have already made huge strides in developing NGA broadband networks, particularly using fibre optic. Some can now offer broadband speeds of 100Mb or more.
