Herefordshire Council and BT start to bring faster broadband to Herefordshire
WORK has started in the first Herefordshire communities to benefit from the multi-million pound project to roll-out faster broadband.
Around 10,000 homes and businesses will have access to faster broadband once the new network is complete, with the first customers expected to be connected during the autumn.
The ‘Fastershire’ project will involve hundreds of engineers working for BT’s local network business Openreach, laying 2,500 kilometres of optical fibre cable and installing around 800 new fibre broadband cabinets throughout the Herefordshire and Gloucestershire project area.
