Leicestershire communities see broadband rollout
Homes across Leicestershire to be connected to new superfast broadband services.Thousands of homes and businesses in Leicestershire are to benefit from improved access to superfast broadband connectivity in the years ahead.
With the rollout of the Superfast Leicestershire programme - a collaboration between network provider BT and Leicestershire County Council - now in full swing, the Hinckley Times reports the communities of Stoney Stanton and Stoke Golding are to become the next areas to benefit from new, faster connections.
Once the installation of new broadband infrastructure is complete, properties in the area are predicted to benefit from download speeds of up to 36 Mbps and upload rates of up to 9.5 Mbps.
Leicestershire County Council Cabinet Member for Broadband Pam Posnett stated: "Superfast broadband makes a huge difference to communities and is also helping to boost our economy."
She added that more than one-third of the 62,000-property target for improved connectivity has now been met by the scheme.
