Ultra-fast broadband trials in Milton Keynes

BT is inviting businesses in Milton Keynes to take part in a trial of its up to 100Mbps fibre optic broadband service.

Companies served by the Bradwell Abbey exchange are being asked to test drive its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) product, which also offers maximum upload rates of 15Mbps.

Employers in 12 local areas, including Broughton, Kents Hill and Woughton, have until March 5th 2012 to sign up for the pilot scheme, which will run until next June 5th.

Hundreds of residents in Milton Keynes are already trialling the fibre broadband service and BT said the initiative will enable firms to download and upload data “far quicker” than they were previously able to without paying any more for their connection.

“Milton Keynes is at the cutting edge of BT’s rollout of faster broadband and this is one of the most important projects to take place in recent years,” commented the company’s south-east regional director John Weaver.
