Rural businesses in Milton Keynes are being invited to take part in a trial of BT super-fast broadband, it has been reported.
Companies served by the remote Bradwell Abbey telephone exchange - such as those based in the villages of Broughton, Kents Hill, Loughton and Middelton - will be able to access 100Mb download speeds.
These could potentially increase to 300Mb next year through the use of fibre-to-the-premises technology.
According to the Milton Keynes Citizen, local companies are being given until March 5th 2012 to register their interest in the trial.
The pilot scheme is scheduled to draw to a close three months later on June 5th.
John Weaver, BT's South East Regional Director, commented that Milton Keynes is "at the cutting edge of BT’s roll-out of faster broadband".
BT is currently investing £2.5 billion upgrading its broadband infrastructure around the UK.
