Consumers are being urged to help their area gain access to high-speed fibre-optic broadband via BT's Race to Infinity programme.

Launched last week, the competition will see the five areas receiving the highest number of customer votes prioritised for next-generation broadband deployment.

In Llandrindod Wells, in mid-Wales, a campaign has been set up to encourage local residents to embrace the initiative, and secure a high ranking for the town.

Participant Roger Malvern told Dod Diary that people should register if they wish reap the benefits of faster broadband speeds.

"Even if Llandrindod doesn't make the top five, this vote would serve to indicate that there is a demand in our area for better internet provision," he said.

Meanwhile, Lois Avery posted an article on Chippenham People urging fellow residents to press the case for an early connection in the Wiltshire town.

She commented: "If, like me, you rely on home internet for work then you'll agree that it can be pretty frustrating not having a decent connection. Or if you run a business or are into gaming a decent broadband service is a must."

According to the County Times, locations in West Sussex, Wiltshire, Devon, Aberdeenshire and Oxfordshire currently occupy the top five places in the Race to Infinity rankings.
