BT boosts its broadband packagesbsg
British Telecom has said it will double the broadband speeds of most of its home and business customers.
The increased speeds will come at no extra charge and follows a similar move by internet service provider AOL.
Many BT customers will now have download speeds of 2Mbps, although there are usage allowances of between one gigabyte and 30 gigabytes a month.
The new speeds start to come into effect on 17 February for home customers and 1 April for businesses.
