Broadband resolution for King's Reach residents
The residents of King's Reach in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire will receive a considerable boost to local broadband connectivity in the coming weeks.

Biggleswade Today reports local campaigner for better broadband in the area Ben Rix has seen his wish come true, after an agreement has been reached between Central Bedfordshire Council and BT to fix ongoing issues with this service that have blighted connections in the area for the last four years.

Maximum broadband speeds in King's Reach currently stand at around 1.7 Mbps, but work is now underway to replace a local roadside cabinet that will see future speeds top the 20 Mbps mark.

The cabinet had been incorrectly located to deliver maximum efficiency for local residents' connections, but this is an issue the community is now hoping will be finally put to rest.

Mr Rix commented: "I have been very pleased to support King's Reach residents' campaign for better broadband.

"I am delighted that faster speeds appear to be within touching distance now."
