Superfast broadband for Essex industrial estate
An industrial estate in Clacton has been connected to fibre optic broadband thanks to a local rollout project.An industrial estate in the Clacton area of Essex has discovered it will be connected to fibre optic broadband.
The switch-on will be part of a scheme to bring speeds as high as 40 Mbps to premises that have not been included in commercial rollouts by BT, reports the Clacton Gazette.
Marlow-based MLL Telecom has collaborated with Tendring Council to carry out the project and give all the firms at the site a significant boost in their connectivity.
MLL Telecom's David Pinnington made it clear that these premises would not be the only ones to benefit from the initiative.
He said: "We are committed to delivering local connectivity solutions to rural areas of the UK such as Tendring currently without widespread superfast broadband."
Mr Pennington went on to stress the importance of firms having access to superfast broadband in order to maintain their economic competitiveness.
The service will also be extended to residential areas throughout the rest of the year.
