Mid-point reached for Superfast Leicestershire
The Superfast Leicestershire scheme has achieved the key milestone of providing next-generation broadband services to half of its original target areas.

With 37,000 business and residential premises now benefiting from enhanced broadband connectivity as a result of the programme, the Leicester Mercury reports the £18 million scheme is now halfway towards its goal.

Launched in 2011, the project continues to transform the lives of individuals across Leicestershire, providing faster broadband speeds and ensuring homes and businesses are able to make use of the latest online services with ease.

The scheme has so far seen the installation of 190 new fibre broadband cabinets and laid more than 318,000 metres of underground cables throughout the county.

Leicestershire County Council's cabinet member for rural broadband Pam Posnett said: "This is a great milestone for the project and I am pleased we are continuing to help more communities and businesses reap the benefits of having access to faster broadband speeds."
