The secrets of Petersfield’s telephone exchange are revealed today, but only to ten people.

The lucky group of geeks will enjoy a tour of the facility on Charles Street after owners Openreach agreed to open its doors.

It comes as Petersfield’s phone network is being upgraded from the old copper wires to ‘full fibre’ connectivity where every home can have Gigabit broadband.

John Hutchinson has organised the event. He told Shine Radio’s Stephen Martin that he’d been fascinated by the building for a while.
