Broadband delivery for Adderley residents
The residents of the village of Adderley in Shropshire are celebrating the rollout of improved broadband infrastructure in their area.

Parish Councillor Roy Tydeman and his wife Jackie have been extremely vocal on the need for improved broadband access for the village's residents in recent months and their calls for action have now been heeded, the Shropshire Star reports.

Work to install a new roadside cabinet in the area has now been made possible through the combined efforts of these local activists, as well as funding and engineering from the Connecting Shropshire scheme - a partnership between Shropshire County Council and network provider BT.

Chris Taylor, Programme Manager for Connecting Shropshire, commented: "Projections showed that the vast majority of the 100-plus premises served by the cabinet would get speeds of 24 Mbps or above.

"Indeed, the village have embraced this positive development with 40 per cent signing up for faster speeds of up to 80 Mbps."
