Get connected with a high speed broadband internet connection If you don't live in part of the country that is broadband enabled yet, then all is not lost - your area might be one that is earmarked to get the service provided once enough demand is shown.

BT (who provide the ADSL service) are running a registration of interest scheme via their website at, and there's various other companies who are providing alternative services such as wireless broadband.

Register your interest in Broadband
Go to BT Openworld, BT Broadband or Zen, and enter your telephone number in to the availability checker to see if you can get the service.

If it says you can get broadband, then congratulations - you can sign up straight away.

Otherwise you will be asked to register your interest in the service, and will be asked for some basic details such as your name and address, and an email address so they can contact you.

If you are on an NTL or Telewest phone line, then you should be able to sign up with them for their services, but not all areas are broadband enabled. Go to the Blueyonder Broadband and NTLworld to see if you are able to get their broadband services.
