Broadband boost for Morpeth business parks
Business parks in Morpeth and the surrounding area will offer a considerable boost to their residents in the coming months through the provision of new superfast broadband connectivity.

The Morpeth Herald reports more than 20 sites have been upgraded as part of the iNorthumberland programme - a collaboration between Northumberland County Council (NCC) and BT - and now offer download rates to business occupants of up to 80 Mbps.

Dave Ledger, deputy leader of NCC, told the local publication: "For some firms, faster file and data transfers might free up hours of their time, others may save money by moving the day-to-day running of their business to the cloud."

Myriad opportunities for cost and productivity savings are therefore being delivered through the rollout of improved broadband access across the region.

In total, as many as 125 local businesses are expected to benefit from measures put in place through iNorthumberland.
