BT is to give businesses in Glasgow the opportunity to trial free super-fast broadband services, it has been reported.
Scotland's second city has been chosen as the third location for the broadband provider's pilot scheme, joining Muswell Hill, London and Whitchurch, Cardiff, which have already signed up to test-run the new technology.
Eligible companies located in the Glasgow Halfway area can take part in the trial until March 2010, gaining broadband download speeds of up to 40Mb and upstream speeds of 2Mb.
BT Business Managing Director Bill Murphy said the three fibre-optic broadband trials will allow businesses to tell the firm "just how they want to use the services".
He added that the schemes would also provide greater insight into the capability of next-generation broadband in "real world conditions".
"It's very exciting for BT and those who want to take part," Mr Murphy stated.
Earlier this year, in its Digital Britain report, the government pledged to make 2Mb broadband download speeds available to every web user in the UK.
