Broadband provider BT is going to test its new fibre optic cables on residential sites around the UK, it has been suggested.

It is thought that the Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) technology will be tested in residential areas that already have a broadband infrastructure, which are known as brownfield sites.

According to ZDNet, the operator could implement the scheme in Highams Park, north London.

Speaking to the website, a spokesperson for BT said that the location is being considered, although nothing has been confirmed yet.

The operator started its tests earlier this year in Muswell Hill, London and Whitchurch, Cardiff.

Following protests from local residents regarding BT's large junction boxes, however, the Muswell Hill trial has been halted.
