Berkshire missed homes to get high-speed broadband

About 2,000 more homes and businesses are to get access to high-speed fibre broadband in parts of Berkshire where the network has already been upgraded.

Thousands missed out on initial upgrades in Slough, Windsor, Eversley, Maidenhead and central Reading.

BT said infill engineering works in those areas would be completed by spring 2014 but some properties would still be unable to access the service.

It said "alternative solutions" for those customers would be investigated.

The completion of the work would give more than 300,000 homes in Berkshire access to fibre broadband, which offers download speeds of up to 80Mbps.

The initial upgrades to the network were completed between 2010 and 2012. The latest works will bridge the gaps in the areas that did not benefit.
