UK internet service provider BT has announced the names of the areas which are currently leading its "Race to Infinity" initiative.
The company launched the "Race to Infinity" scheme to encourage residents to vote for their local exchanges to get superfast broadband connections in 2012. BT said that it had received a total of 290,000 votes so far.
According to BT, Blewbury in Oxfordshire, Caxton in Cambridgeshire and Castleton in Newport are currently leading the race, with the highest number of votes from residents and businesses in these local areas.
“Super-fast speeds can transform your online life whether you’re social networking, gaming, streaming video, uploading or downloading. So please vote now and don’t forget to spread the word by passing it on to your friends on Facebook and Twitter to get your area to the top of the scoreboard,” John Petter, Managing Director of BT’s Consumer division said in a statement.
BT also plans to connect two-thirds of Britain with super-fast broadband network by 2015 and has already poured in a significant amount of investment into accomplishing that.
