An industry dispute between internet service provider (ISP) BT and long-running rival Virgin Media threatens to stall the roll-out of high speed broadband in Milton Keynes.

According to ISPreview.co.uk, the two companies cannot reach an agreement on the issue of access to physical broadband infrastructure in the town, which, in turn, is causing severe delays to the modernisation of Milton Keynes' ageing network infrastructure.

A spokesperson from Virgin Media told the news provider: "We have been working toward upgrading the services delivered to Milton Keynes for some time now and we have been in ongoing dialogue with our network provider to look at the best way forward."

However, they added that because of the "unique situation in Milton Keynes", Virgin Media could not commit to any exact roll-out dates for its 100Mb broadband bundles.

BT refused to comment on the broadband access issue in the town.

Recently, internet service provider Powernet launched a fibre-to-the-cabinet service in Milton Keynes aimed specifically at small and medium-sized enterprises.
