Wholesale Broadband Connect (WBC) is BT Wholesale's up-to-24 Mbit/s ADSL offering in the UK, which is currently being rolled out to exchanges throughout the United Kingdom as part of the 21CN upgrade. WBC replaces the now-retired ADSL Max product. It also refers to BT's native Fibre-to-the-Premises service, in which BT pays for the majority of the cost to roll fibre directly to houses, with home owners able to pay a substantially smaller cost to receive the service, though its rollout is very slow and patchy.

WBC is defined in SIN 472.

ADSL2+ has been available in the UK from Internet Service Providers since 2005, through Local Loop Unbundling.

The roll out of WBC by BT will enable the majority of the UK population to gain access to ADSL2+ services, rather than relying on their exchange to be unbundled by LLU operators.
