Milton Keynes' involvement in a major broadband trial is a "fantastic development", according to an expert.
Adam Chapman, the spokesman for the Milton Keynes Broadband Action Group (MKBAG), said the body is "immensely supportive" of the city's involvement in BT's trial of Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) technology.
Talking to Milton Keynes Today, he added that the introduction of the service could have major benefits for homeowners and businesses.
Mr Chapman explained: "If, after the trial, such speeds were rolled out across the city, it will generate inward financial investment, helping us become the commercial centre for the midlands for the next ten years.
"Infrastructure like this is vital to keep Milton Keynes moving in the direction we all want it to."
MKBAG is a body that is campaigning for all residents in the city to have access to broadband.
Until 2004, several parts of Milton Keynes had no access to such services.
