Landlords may be able to offer tenants broadband services at speeds of up to 100 Megabits per second (Mbps) from 2012.

BT has announced that its fibre-optic network costing £1.5 billion should be ready by the time the Olympic Games begin.

Some of the company's five million customers will have access to the fastest speeds, but it hopes to offer ten million homes access to the network by 2012.

Chief executive of the company Ian Livingston said: "Given the progress we're making, four million homes will have access to fibre [optic broadband] by the end of next year."

Editor of broadband.co.uk Edd Dawson recently claimed that a country's economy can be boosted if its citizens have access to super fast broadband technology.

It was reported on December 22nd that one-third of Brits will face excessive downloading fines this Christmas, Broadbandchoices.co.uk stated.

Landlords should ensure tenants know their limits, as the website said that 32 per cent of broadband users plan to watch more online TV over Christmas.
