Up to 150 telephone exchanges across the UK are set to be upgraded as part of broadband network proposals announced by BT, it has been revealed.

The broadband provider has revealed that the sites will benefit from the latest work to expand coverage of its Wholesale Broadband Connect (WBC) service, which offers speeds of up to 24Mb.

Over 16.8 million homes and businesses will be given access to improved connections through the work.

Emma Elshof, BT Wholesale's General Manager of Broadband Products, said more announcements on WBC services are expected in the coming months.

She added: "We expect to announce more exchanges this summer as we remain fully committed to our intention to deliver WBC services to up to 75 per cent of UK homes and businesses by spring 2011."

BT recently confirmed that homes and businesses in areas including Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire are benefitting from its work to roll out super-fast fibre-optic broadband across the UK.
