BT says consumers' experiences of the internet will be 'transformed' with the service. Households with multiple computers/internet devices will enjoy simultaneous use of services such as HD catch-up TV, social networking and the sharing of photos or films, amongst others.

Peter Morris, Consumer Director, BT said: "The internet is essential to our customers' lives and they are demanding more and more as richer and even more compelling services become available. We are delighted to offer our customers a service which can offer them the capacity and reliability they need in an instant and at a great value price they can afford."

Kellie Ann McNally from Dunmurry said she has seen a huge difference.

"We have more than one laptop in the house and we can all use them at the same time without losing connection or a slow down which is great" she said.
