Super-fast broadband for village
THOUSANDS of homes and businesses in and around Pill will soon benefit from the installation of super-fast fibre broadband.
BT has announced it will make a major investment to roll out the high-speed internet service to 41,700 South West homes and businesses in 2013, including 5,000 in the Pill area.
It is hoped the investment will give a major lift to the local economy.
BT South West regional director Jon Reynolds said: “The arrival of fibre broadband in these communities is a massive shot in the arm for the local economy, creating new businesses, jobs and educational opportunities.
“Local firms and households who make the switch to fibre broadband will be able to do so much more with their connection, whether they’re using it for business, entertainment, education, social networking or shopping – or all of these at once.”
