The South Norfolk Council is working together with InTouch Systems to deploy a new 10Mbps+ capable network to areas that are not covered by the Better Broadband for Norfolk (BBfN) project.
Michael Edney, Deputy Leader of South Norfolk Council, said: “A decent broadband service is essential in nearly every aspect of our modern lives – shopping, homework, video streaming, social networks and so much more. The current broadband speeds have left some residents and businesses feeling excluded and frustrated making it vitally important that we did something to help – and we have.”
Steve Temple, InTouch Systems, added: “We are very proud and excited to be awarded the contract by South Norfolk Council to provide sustainable, reliable, fast broadband via our independent ITSwisp network. We are familiar with the challenges faced by local communities and businesses with limited broadband, having worked together with other local areas developing our innovative ITSwisp service to move them forward into the 21st century.”
Information on pricing, deployment cost, and specific expectation of coverage are yet to be announced.
