BT Infinity broadband coming to 4 more villages

Thursday, February 3rd 2011 by Editorial
The technology will be available in the four rural communities by early 2012.

BT Infinity fibre optic broadband will be available to residents and businesses in four more villages over the coming months.

The service will be rolled out to properties in Burley in Wharfedale in Yorkshire, Capel in Surrey, Lindfield in West Sussex and Marton in Warwickshire after the communities were named as the latest winners in BT's Race to Infinity, a vote that determined which areas have the most demand for the technology.

Although they missed out on making the original roll of six successful towns and villages, each of these locations will now get access to the service by early 2012.

A spokesman from BT explained: "We decided to extend the list of winners to the 'top ten' because of the exceptional passion and commitment shown by local campaigners and residents."

The announcement comes just days after the telecoms giant revealed it has deployed super-fast broadband to 40,000 properties in Swindon.

BT Infinity offers download speeds of up to 40Mbps, along with a maximum upload capacity of ten Mbps.
