Over the next five years BT is rolling out superfast fibre optic broadband across the UK. Mayfield is not on the announced roll out plan but ‘The Race to Infinity’ gives us the opportunity to fast track our area to get BT Infinity next.
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.
According to BT figures there are 1,272 lines within the Mayfield exchange, so hopefully it shouldn’t be too hard to get a good percentage of users to vote.
It goes without saying that this would be of huge benefit to those who continue to suffer from existing slow speeds and all our local businesses whose livelihood depends on a fast reliable broadband connection.
To vote simply go to www.racetoinfinity.bt.com and enter your details. Don’t forget to pass this information on to your friends on Facebook and Twitter and hopefully between us we can get Mayfield moving.
