An additional £4.1 million is to be invested into the ongoing iNorthumberland programme, ensuring a further 3,000 local residents can gain access to next-generation online services in the coming months.

Dave Ledger, Deputy Leader of Northumberland County Council, stated: "Access to superfast broadband is becoming fundamental to our everyday lives and it is only right that our residents expect to be able to access faster broadband speeds no matter where they live."

He added that some of the most hard-to-reach areas have benefited from enhanced broadband services under the project to date, while the work continues to provide a wide range of benefits to communities across the whole of Northumberland.

Overall, this latest tranche of funding builds upon the £18.9 million already invested into new superfast broadband connectivity for the county and will help in the delivery of improved services to areas including Matfen, Hebron, Longhirst, Scremerston, Doddington, Newtown and Tosson.
