Another 100 exchanges will be added to BT's ADSL rollout, it was announced yesterday, putting places like Aberdeen, Brighton, Liverpool and Nottingham on the broadband map.

In total, an extra 16 towns and cities will be able to access ADSL services from June. BT already plans to rollout ADSL in 400 exchanges across the UK by the end of March. In total, nearly two million households and 40,000 businesses -- 35 percent of the population -- will be able to access broadband services by the middle of the year.
