Broadband boost for Brentwood parishes
A number of rural parishes across Brentford are to receive a boost to broadband connectivity over the coming months.

Residents will be able to connect to download speeds of between 40 and 60 Mbps once associated infrastructure work is carried out and could see these new services in place by June, the Brentwood Gazette reports.

The work forms part of ongoing efforts to provide improved broadband services to 85 per cent of the county by 2016 and is being delivered as part of an ongoing partnership between Essex County Council and BT.

A spokesperson for BT told the news provider: "We are working closely with Superfast Essex to further plan and expand into areas of Essex, such as these parishes which were not covered by the commercial rollout."

Once complete, the work will enable more than 580,000 Essex homes and businesses to connect to superfast broadband.
