The village of Thornbury has won the backing of the local council as it attempts to persuade BT to provide broadband access.

Cllr John Calway, leader of South Gloucestershire Council, has told the Gazette newspaper that broadband connections are vital if Thornbury is to avoid being left behind by neighbouring areas.

"I firmly believe that the more of us there are to make the strong case to these companies that these improvements should be on their agendas, the more chance we will have of succeeding in getting real progress in tackling this digital divide," he said.

Small firms in the area recently gathered together at a meeting hosted by BT and the Forum of Small Business to discuss the telecoms giant's plans to rollout a super-fast broadband network across the UK by the year 2012.
