BT has reportedly tested a revolutionary non-invasive copper cable replacement technology developed by Kabel-X, writes The Times. The technology strips copper cable and replaces it with fibre optic cable without having to dig up roads. The technology could help accelerate BT’s super-fast broadband plans. Simon MacDonald, founding partner of Kabel-X in the UK, said it had conducted a successful trial project with BT in Southampton. He said the technology is already being deployed in Austria and Germany and is being tested in the US.
