KESGRAVE has emerged as one of the UK's front runners in a BT initiative to extend the availability of high speed broadband communications.

It is the first place in the east of England and one of the first in the country to hit the demand target set by BT under the company's broadband registration scheme.

The registration scheme, launched in July, allows businesses and households in areas not served by ADSL broadband to log an interest in ordering the service.

BT today announced that Kesgrave had achieved its target of 350 registrations. Service providers are now being asked to confirm the demand at Kesgrave so that work can begin on upgrading the exchange for broadband.

Bruce Stanford, BT Wholesale director broadband, said: "There is no doubt that local campaigns have helped drive demand. I know that the community of Kesgrave has been very active in promoting the broadband registration scheme. Now it's time for us to continue working together with the broadband service providers to bring broadband to Kesgrave and more exchanges in the months ahead."
