Yesterday we reported that BT had announced the locations of 303 exchanges it would be upgrading in the coming 18 months to offer its new 40Mbit/s service.
Although we gave a breakdown of the number of exchanges within England, Northern Ireland and Wales that would receive the updates, some of our readers asked why there was no link to the specific locations of the exchanges.
The truth is that while the telecoms giant sent us an Excel spreadsheet of the locations, it has so far failed to provide this list on a page on its web site to which we can link.
The firm told us today that it was planning on putting a list up on its site but in the meantime told those interested to use its postcode finder service to see if they would be able to access the new improved services.
Some readers also asked why Scotland hadn't been mentioned in the report.
'Hibby' said: "So no mention of scotland for an upgrade.....no worries we are only a small country with 5 million people...Virgin will do well up here then."
Another reader, Andy MacPherson, said, "I notice that Scotland is not mentioned in the upgrades, which I think is par for the course. I live in a rural area of this region and have BT Option2. This is advertised as speeds of up to 20Mbit/s, which is a con as the most I can get is any thing between 2.8 and 3.9, for this I pay £21 a month."
BT responded that it has already announced Glasgow and Edinburgh in earlier phases of the rollout. A spokesman said, "We do expect to include further Scottish exchanges in later phases of our super-fast broadband rollout."
He added that the announcement of the 303 exchanges represented just over 50 per cent of the total rollout of the updates and said that the firm would be "considering other areas in Scotland for the later phases".
