N3 bandwith to be increased for 70% of GP practices

19th July 2012

GP practices should enjoy better bandwidth from next March.

The GP Next Generation Access project will increase bandwidth on N3 for 70% of English GP practices by March next year with the N3 broadband network upgraded to a new broadband service using 21C DSL technology in place of the IP stream that is currently used.

NHS Connecting for Health is funding the project, which will be delivered by the N3 service provider, BT, leading to "improved upstream and downstream speeds for users".
