      I think there is a lot of confusion about what 21cn is. It is not new cabling to houses or even to cabinets. It is an upgrading in exchanges basically to enable the use of IP instead of PSTN. No new wires will be laid to anywhere, this is a completely separate exercise which will require an investment of 5.5 to 26 billion, depending on how and when it is done, if it ever is.

      As far as I can see, 21cn will enable BT to offer ISPs an up to 16/24MB service similar to that already enjoyed by Sky, BE and other ISPs who have unbundled exchanges. You can read more here-

      If you are on Sky Max, it will make no difference to you if you are not already getting the maximum, no matter what ISP you move to. If you can get the maximum at the moment and you move to an ISP offering up to 24 Mbs, you may benefit. If you are not near the maximum, you will be no better off. 24 Mbs is pie in the Sky for 98% of users, until lines are replaced with fibre to the house
