Peterborough Council welcomes broadband boost
Councillors at Peterborough Council have welcomed the construction of a new ultra-fast broadband line.Councillors in Peterborough have welcomed the construction of a new fibre optic network that will bring speeds of 1,000Mbps to residents.
The major infrastructure project is being undertaken by IT service provider Serco, which has partnered with Peterborough City Council, and is expected to go online in the next 12 to 14 months.
Marco Cereste, Leader of Peterborough City Council, said: "It is good to see that work has started on the project because when it is complete it will help not only the business community but also Peterborough’s, schools, and public services."
CityFibre, the project name of the Serco-council collaboration, also recently announced it is starting to sign up business customers including Taylor Rose, a solicitors firm based in the city.
Luke Hutchings, Head of Employment at Taylor Rose, said poor connectivity is holding his business back and that improved download speeds will help the 200-employee company to expand.
