Internet service provider (ISP) BT has announced the rollout of next-generation broadband internet in Milton Keynes.
The firm has introduced fibre-to-the-premises in the region and some 500 broadband bundle customers have signed up to the new service already.
BT claims the new service offers Milton Keynes residents download speeds of up to 100Mb.
The project is part of a wider fibre optic broadband initiative that will see some 270,000 UK homes connected to the broadband internet service by September of this year.
Johnny McQuiod, BT's Superfast Broadband Programme Director, said that the new technology will be made available to all ISPs on a wholesale basis.
BT recently rolled out its next-generation fibre optic network technology in Southend, a move that was welcomed by the town's local council.
The project is set to be expanded beyond the boundaries of the town into the surrounding countryside in the near future Southend's MP James Duddfridge told the Essex Echo.
