Worcestershire County Council is bringing superfast broadband to Bentley Pauncefoot residents. Working together with Openreach, the local government has successfully installed 'gold standards' internet connectivity across the parish.
Councillor Marc Bayliss, cabinet member for economy, infrastructure, and skills, said: “Bentley Pauncefoot Parish Council reached out to the team from Superfast Worcestershire to carry out much-needed improvements to the parish’s internet connectivity.
“Openreach has now installed ‘gold standard’ internet connectivity across the parish.
“It means residents have access to the very best, and fastest, internet connectivity available.
“Even the most remote properties can now enjoy internet service up to 1Gbps.”
Roz Bewsher, chair of Bentley Pauncefoot Parish Council, said: “I believe we have repaid the faith Worcestershire County Council's Connectivity Team and Openreach placed in us by the high take-up of the service.
“It has taken a lot longer than we would have wished, and a lot of effort from the parish council and residents willing to act as ‘bid leaders’ across the parish, but I am extremely proud that we have achieved something that is so critical to our residents.”
