Broadband boost for Knutsford homes
More than 70,000 residential properties across the Cheshire town of Knutsford have benefited from improved broadband connectivity in recent months.

The Knutsford Guardian reports the ongoing £28.5 million Connecting Cheshire initiative continues to deliver on its promise of faster broadband and more widespread superfast services across the county, as it aims to achieve 96 per cent coverage by the end of the year.

Organised in partnership between Cheshire East Council and network provider BT, the programme of works are helping thousands of households to access the latest in online services and entertainment.

A range of other local areas are now in line for network upgrades, including Church Minshull, Malpas, Elton, Farndon, Lymm and Congleton.

Leader of Cheshire East Council Councillor Michael Jones commented: "This is more good news for residents and local businesses.

"We are well on our way to connecting 80,000 premises across Cheshire. The rollout of superfast broadband is going to benefit rural communities significantly."
