Connectivity boost for Bourton residents
The multi-million pound Superfast Dorset programme has helped to bring improved broadband speeds to the town of Bourton.

Blackmore Vale Magazine reports the new fibre connections that have been rolled out across the area mean internet connection speeds are now 6.5 times faster than they were prior to the rollout getting underway.

More than 24,000 properties have now been connected to superfast broadband services as part of the scheme and this figure is set to rise even further in the months ahead.

County councillor for Stour Vale Andrew Cattaway told the local publication: "This is excellent news for Bourton and for the people of north Dorset. This opens up huge opportunities for businesses and people living in the area that wouldn't otherwise be available to them."

He added that the Superfast Dorset programme is "making a real difference" for rural communities and brings an extremely welcome boost to broadband services.
