BT is preparing to open high street stores for potential new customers to be given demonstrations of its Total Broadband service.

From next week, customers will be able to see the demonstrations of the super-fast service at trial stores in Whitchurch near Cardiff and plans to expand the number of stores where customers can get full hands-on tutorials.

BT Retail marketing director Matthew Dearden said: “The BT Retail super fast broadband shop in Whitchurch is the first showcase of its kind to hit Britain’s high streets, with another shop planned to open in Muswell Hill, London, next week.”

He added: “The showcase shows local people what super fast broadband, currently being trialled in their areas, is all about and enables them to see demonstrations of a range of home and business applications that will enhance their lives.”
