BT rolls out superfast broadband in Bristol
Broadband bundle provider BT is delivering a new 40Mbps broadband service to homes in Bristol this summer.

The high-speed network has gone live in the Downend area of the city and will be rolled out across other parts later this year.

BT plans to cover more than two-thirds of the UK with its superfast fibre-optic network, and this new service is part of those on-going improvements.

Jon Reynolds, BT's director for the south-west, told the BBC that not everyone would be connected right away.

"Depending on where they are clearly they may have to be patient but look for announcements, talk to your community leaders or your local council and make your feelings known," he said.

Some 15,000 homes are already connected, with the figure to reach 50,000 by the end of the year.

BT recently struck a deal with Alcatel-Lucent that it claims will speed up its existing network.
