BT and TalkTalk appeal DEA judicial reviewBT and TalkTalk have confirmed they are launching an appeal after losing their judicial review of the Digital Economy Act (DEA).

The Internet Service Providers (ISPs) won the right to a review on the controversial legislation back in November, which would see illegal filesharers getting their internet connections cut off.

In what’s being described as the UK’s “largest ever FTTH initiative”, Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe will connect up to one million properties to i3 Group’s Fibrecity network within the next four years.

In July, Fujitsu began rolling out the fibre optic network to 68,000 homes in Dundee. By 2012, every home and business across the city is expected to have access to broadband capable of speeds of 100Mbps with boosts of up to 1Gbps.
