BT has settled on the UK locations to test is faster fibre broadband Internet service. Residents in Muswell Hill in London and Whitechurch in Cardiff will be the first in the UK to sample the blazing new speeds. When the new fibre network goes live residents will get speeds up to 40 Mbps.

BT says that up to 15,000 homes and businesses in the areas will get to participate in the pilot. Fibre cabling will have to be run to the street cabinets that connect homes to the exchange. The locations were chosen according to BT because of their geography and make up of local communications.

The pilot programs will begin in the summer of 2009 and more pilot areas will be chosen by the end of 2009. Users of the new service will be encouraged to try high bandwidth services like online gaming and HD movie streaming.
