Internet service provider (ISP) BT is to conduct a nationwide survey – entitled Race to Infinity - to establish the level demand for its super-fast broadband service.

The ISP is currently spending £2.5 billion upgrading local telephone exchanges across the UK to support next-generation broadband.

Up until December 31st 2010, communities will be able to register their interest in the new BT Infinity service, allowing the ISP to identify 'hotspots' of demand.

BT says the survey will influence its future deployment plans, as it bids to gradually rollout fibre technology across the UK.

By the end of 2010, BT expects to have brought next-generation broadband within the reach of four million households and businesses. The ISP aims to extend this to two-thirds of the UK by 2015.

Gavin Patterson, BT Retail Chief Executive, said: "The Race to Infinity is an opportunity for the country to make its voice heard.

"We want to hear from towns and villages across the UK and so I would encourage people to take part and register their interest."
