ADWICK and Tickhill have been included in the latest wave of areas to receive superfast broadband under a BT scheme.

They will be able to receive the service carried over copper lines next summer according the to the company’s roll out plans.

The BT scheme makes available broadband speeds of up to 20 megabits per second – more than double the maximum speeds previously available to the majority of UK homes and businesses.

The new next generation broadband network is available on an open, wholesale basis to all companies providing broadband services.

The plan is in addition to a BT roll-out of super-fast fibre-based broadband, which is expected to bring even faster speeds to two-thirds of UK premises by the end of 2014.

John Anderson, BT’s regional director for Yorkshire, said: “We have already announced plans to make super-fast fibre-based broadband available to more than a million homes and businesses in the region by the end of next year. Now we are able to confirm a further major investment in faster broadband speeds over copper lines.”
