Broadband provider murphx has announced it is to take part in trials of BT's new Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) technology.
The platform which is designed to cut loss by using copper lines between the end user and a local exchange - is being piloted in areas including Muswell Hill in London, Whitchurch in Cardiff and Glasgow's Halfway.
Carl Churchill, director of murphx, said the company was committed to being "at the forefront of any technological development", which is why it wanted to participate in the scheme.
He added: "BT expects this service to be rolled out commercially in 2010, with an estimated 10 million homes receiving next-generation broadband in 2012 and we want to ensure we can provide full accessibility to our customers."
Earlier this year, murphx was named the Internet Service Provider of the Year at the Comms Business Awards, while it is also ranked the fifth fastest growing broadband firm by research body Plimsoll.
