UK telecommunication infrastructure provider Digital Infrastructure has confirmed that work to bring faster broadband to Bamford and Whitworth has begun.
The infrastructure, which will be operated by internet service provider BeFibre when completed, will bring broadband speeds that are 13 times faster than the fibre-to-the-cabin coverage that currently plan the majority of the UK.
Commenting on the roll out, Louise Elliott, chief customer and operations officer for BeFibre and Digital Infrastructure said: “As a country, there’s a lot of work to be done in the UK, to provide communities with the internet connectivity they truly need.
“That’s why we’re working hard – and at pace – to deliver a future-proofed broadband network in areas that have been underserved, to date.
“We’re working quickly, utilising existing ducts so we don’t have to dig up Bamford and Whitworth’s roads. This is less disruptive, allows us to connect homes faster, and it’s better for the environment too.
“If you see us in the area, come and talk to us – we want to speak to as many residents as possible to understand what makes Bamford and Whitworth tick.”
