Suffolk: Faster broadband rolled out to further 20,000 homes and business
AROUND 20,000 more homes and businesses in Suffolk now have access to faster broadband, BT announced today.
Mildenhall, Pakenham and Whitton are the latest communities in the region to benefit from the roll-out of BT’s pioneering next generation broadband service delivered over copper lines - giving internet users access to broadband speeds of up to 20 megabits per second (Mbps).
It is already available in Bury St Edmunds, Felixstowe, Foxhall, Glemsford, Haverhill, Ipswich, Kesgrave, Lowestoft, Newmarket, Stowmarket and Sudbury .
Dave Hughes, BT’s East of England regional director, said: “This is an important step forward for these areas. Faster broadband can help businesses become more
competitive and greatly improve the online services available to families, homeworkers and other internet users.”
