Fibre broadband progress for Trafford
Nearly 2,000 premises in the Trafford area of Greater Manchester can now access superfast fibre optic broadband, thanks to the Get Digital Faster rollout programme.

Plans are in place to install around 75 green roadside cabinets to connect to the fibre network in Trafford by 2016, with 20 already upgraded to the superfast service.

Homes and businesses in Altrincham, Sale, Trafford Park and Longford can now access the high-speed technology, with the total set to be connected over the coming years predicted to reach 7,000.

BT Programme Director Steve Holmes commented: "This switch to high-speed, high-performance technology will fire up the local economy in Trafford. We're really pleased with the rapid progress of Get Digital Faster."

The multi-million pound regional rollout initiative is being supported by the local council, as well as network provider BT and has already delivered better broadband to a significant number of residential and commercial properties, despite only being launched in August this year.
