More than four million premises around the UK will be hooked up to BT's super-fast broadband network by the end of this year, it has been claimed.

David Campbell, BT Openreach's Managing Director of Next-Generation Access, said the internet service provider (ISP) has already made high-speed services available to two million homes and businesses.

He said that fibre-based broadband offers consumers far faster speeds and lets them explore new and innovative ways of doing things online.

"It is a complete and radical change in the user experience," Mr Campbell stated.

"It will also create huge economic benefits for the UK - for businesses and the health and education sectors - and help support a low carbon economy."

Meanwhile, BT Scotland Director Brendan Dick has reiterated the firm's plans to extend next-generation broadband to the 'final third' of the country.

He said the ISP was keen to talk to public and private sector organisations about how this can be achieved.
