BT urges Welsh communities to show demand for fibre

Tuesday, October 5th 2010 by Cable.co.uk

Telecoms giant BT has launched its new Race to Infinity campaign in Wales.

BT has called on communities in Wales to demonstrate how keen they are for fibre optic broadband to be rolled out in their areas.

The telecoms giant has unveiled plans to upgrade the five UK exchanges with the highest demand for super-fast broadband to its fibre optic network by early 2012 at the latest.

Many parts of the country have already been confirmed as being included in BT's plans to bring the infrastructure to two-thirds of properties by 2015, with the company now seeking to find out where else it should deploy the technology.

In order to express their desire to gain access to fibre optic broadband, householders and businesses must visit BT's Race to Infinity microsite to register their vote.

"It's vital for the country that residents take the time to complete this survey," remarked BT's director for Wales Ann Beynon.

The broadband provider's fibre optic service - BT Infinity - offers download speeds of up to 40Mb/s and is available from £19.99 per month.
