A LOCAL firm is helping Hospital Radio Ipswich to deliver improved live commentary on Town's home games.

Ipswich-based KeZone, an internet service provider, has given the radio station more than £300 worth of access cards free of charge so that it can deliver better real time coverage to its listeners.

The station has been commentating on all ITFC's home games since 1971, and raised funds for a laptop to allow them to broadcast from the ground's commentary box.

Hospital radio commentator Tim Ward, who is also manager of the Ipswich branch of Lloyds TSB, said they were “delighted” that the company was supplying them with free wireless access to the internet for the whole season.
