A community campaign from Test Valley Need 4 Speed and West Tytherley Broadband Group is bringing faster internet service to hundreds of homes and businesses in both Test and Dun Valleys. The campaign, which was supported by Romsey and Southampton North MP Caroline Nokes, will enable up to 4,000 premises across villages to access speeds that are almost 200 times faster than previous rates.
Cate Bell, chairman of West Tytherley and Frenchmoor Parish Council said: “We are really pleased that Virgin Media’s network is now starting to appear across the Test and Dun Valley villages.
“Their build is the result of a huge community campaign, championed by several individuals across the area, and we are glad that villagers can now start to benefit from this brilliant initiative.”
Hugh Woolford, regional director at Virgin Media, said: “We are delighted that local residents and businesses in these villages can now start to benefit from the boost our ultrafast broadband will give them.
“They’re the first communities in the Test and Dun Valleys to experience our incredible service and we will continue to rollout our network to more villages in the area as soon as we can.”
