Innerleithen, in borders of Scotland, has become the first Scottish town to be ranked among the top locations vying to win BT's Race to Infinity initiative.

Innerleithen managed to grab fourth position in the Race to Infinity with 74.18 per cent of the vote.

The voting for the Race to Infinity campaign is scheduled to close at the end of this month and only the towns with the most votes will qualify for BT's super-fast broadband network in the next two years.

According to BT's Race to Infinity, Caxton in Cambridgeshire is leading the pack with 89.38 per cent of the vote, followed by Blewbury with 89.24 per cent and Madingley with 80.77 per cent.

“The five areas with the largest percentage of votes by December 31st 2010 will win the chance to bring superfast broadband to their area. BT will also donate £5,000 of computer equipment to a local community project,” the company said while launching the initiative.
