Broadband provider BT has announced that it is to upgrade broadband connections to up to 20Mb for millions of users.

The plan will see 40 per cent of its UK customers boosted to the new speed this summer, with about 55 per cent benefiting by March next year.

In order to receive the free upgrade, existing subscribers will be required to sign a new one-year contract.

Chief Executive of BT Retail, Gavin Patterson, said: "Unlike other providers, BT is upgrading customers to 20Mb for free.

"High-speed broadband provides a faster and more reliable service that will transform the way we live, work, learn and play."

At present, the telecoms group offers broadband download speeds of up to 8Mb.

From July 1st, BT will also be starting trials of its new 40Mb fibre-to-the-cabinet broadband network in locations within London and Cardiff.
