Inkberrow, a village famous for its connections to The Archers, is set to receive a high-speed broadband connection under latest BT plans.

Around 1,600 homes and businesses will gain access to increased broadband speeds, after the Worcestershire village – upon which Radio 4's long-running serial is said to be modelled - was added to the BT fibre broadband rollout roster.

The Worcester News said the high-speed connection is likely to be installed by spring 2012, meaning residents could have super-fast services within the year.

John Dovey, BT's West Midlands Regional Director, said: "This is another important step forward. Faster broadband can help businesses become more competitive and improve the online services available to families and homeworkers."

He claimed that BT is the only company consistently investing in a mixture of faster broadband technologies both in and outside the region's major urban areas.

"As the rollout of faster broadband gathers pace, internet users will increasingly be able to choose the service that suits their needs best," Mr Dovey added.

BT is currently in the process of investing £2.5 billion upgrading its internet infrastructure to support high-speed fibre services.
