Inhabitants of Muswell Hill in London and Whitchurch in South Glamorgan will not be the only people to enjoy a sneak preview of BT's new super-fast broadband

A number of East Anglian residents in Kesgrave will also be invited to trial BT's new fibre-optic service before the rest of the country.

Around 30 lucky households will be chosen in the area, which is close to the BT research centre which helped develop the service at Adastral Park in Martlesham.

Speaking to the East Anglian Daily Times, a BT spokesman confirmed: "BT will be running a small-scale technical trial of super-fast fibre broadband technology in the Kesgrave area, beginning in January 2009.

"This will allow BT's new generation of fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) broadband to be comprehensively tested in a semi-rural environment."

Individuals that take part in the pilot could enjoy the benefits of the super-fast broadband for many years to come, the BBC reports, after it was announced that BT was not planning to remove the equipment used once the trial period had ended.
