BT's Race to Infinity closes today, deciding the five areas which will be rewarded with a free superfast broadband upgrade.

The race has been going since October, with residents being invited to vote for their town. The five areas with the largest percentage of votes will see their broadband upgraded by 2012 and will also receive £5,000 of computer equipment for a local community project.

Currently, Whitchurch in Hampshire, Baschurch in Shropshire, Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders, Caxton and Madingley in Cambridgeshire and Blewbury in Oxfordshire are topping the leaderboard with 100 per cent apiece.

BT has also pledged to hold talks with any areas where 75 per cent of people have visited the website.

Marton in Warwickshire so far has 78.33 per cent while Capel in Surrey has 75.08 per cent.

Burley in Wharfdale and Lindfield in West Sussex complete the top ten with 67.23 per cent and 61.07 per cent respectively.
