Droitwich County Council has confirmed that fast broadband speeds will soon be accessible to thousands of homes and businesses - thanks to a major broadband upgrade scheme and the national drive that aims to improve internet access across the UK.
The council confirms that the scheme will enable up to 10Gbps - the equivalent of 10,000Mbps - by summer 2022.
Councillor Marc Bayliss, Worcestershire County Council cabinet member for economy and skills, said: “While faster broadband connections are being successfully rolled out across the county, there can still be an issue in smaller towns and rural areas, so we welcome this investment by Fullfibre.
"I am delighted that connectivity across Droitwich will now be significantly improved to future-proof its network infrastructure.
"This will make a real difference to residents and businesses in the town, at a time when access to the internet has never been so important."
Oliver Helm, Fullfibre CEO, said: “Full Fibre recognises the national necessity for both residents and businesses to upgrade to ultrafast fibre services if they are to embrace modern digital services and educational tools.
"Droitwich is currently restricted to ageing copper connections, not meeting the needs of modern, homeworking families.
"It’s vital that everyone in a community gets access to ultrafast, reliable services and the opportunities that come with it."
