The Labour MP for Warrington North has welcomed BT's decision to bring fibre broadband services to the area.

Helen Jones told the Warrington Guardian she was "pleased" at the announcement, which came last week as BT named the next 156 locations set to receive a network upgrade this year.

Households and businesses who receive their broadband deal through Warrington's Padgate telephone exchange will soon be able to access download speeds of up to 40Mb.

The internet service provider's fibre broadband network has the potential to deliver up to 60Mb speeds in the future.

"I am pleased that BT will be delivering super-fast broadband for residents in Warrington North who receive their internet package from the Padgate exchange," Ms Jones said.

"We need the fastest broadband available to help local businesses and residents."

BT is currently investing up to £2.5 billion rolling out fibre broadband services across the UK.

The firm is aiming to deliver high-speed broadband to two-thirds of the UK population by 2015.
