Local MP gets to test-drive special broadband on trial in Muswell Hill

Lynne Featherstone trying out super-fast broadband in Muswell HillTo see first hand the extra benefits local businesses and residents can enjoy this autumn, Lynne Featherstone MP last week got to test-drive BT’s super-fast broadband as they exclusively trial the system in Muswell Hill.

The Hornsey and Wood Green MP got the chance to see how fast the 100 meg broadband could download and upload files, as well as stream films and video conferences. Muswell Hill is one of two areas in the UK being used as a trial area to test the new technology, and during the autumn local residents will be able to use the super-fast broad band for free.

Lynne Featherstone MP comments:

“I know that a lot of my constituents work from home, and this extra fast broadband can really help them get ahead, both in work and play!

“Coming out of a recession is all about finding new solutions, and hopefully innovations like these will help both local residents and businesses get the best possible service in the future.

“I hope too, that BT will work on making any extra boxes that have to be installed on our streets as unobtrusive and tasteful as possible.”
