Todmorden in West Yorkshire could be on course to receive a broadband infrastructure upgrade, it has been reported.

According to the Halifax Courier, the valley town, which lies at the heart of Calderdale near the Lancashire border, has received more votes in BT's Race to Infinity competition than any other location.

Last month, the internet service provider invited broadband users to make the case for fibre broadband in their communities by registering their interest in super-fast web services.

The five towns or villages which receive the highest level of interest across the UK will be prioritised for access to BT's next-generation broadband network.

Todmorden currently has the highest number of votes, the news provider reports. However, Hipperholme has the highest percentage of votes based on the size of the local population.

John Anderson, BT's Regional Director for Yorkshire and the Humber, said: "This is a golden opportunity for people in the region to demonstrate the level of demand for fibre broadband in their communities."
