Kensington and Chelsea Council have hit back after BT pulled out of installing a new broadband network in the borough because of a planning row. The firm wanted to install cabinets in the borough's streets but the council wanted them underground or in sites where BT already had equipment.
A council spokesman said: "We regret that BT are not proceeding with superfast broadband in the Royal Borough but we expect other providers will want to offer superfast broadband to our residents, in a very valuable market, without ruining our historic streetscape."
Telecoms firm BT says it has stopped installing its new broadband network in Kensington and Chelsea because the council kept rejecting planning applications. The company needs to put cabinets in the streets for the network, but it says the council has rejected most of its attempts to install them.
