More than 6,000 homes and businesses in Derbyshire now have access to high speed broadband.
This is the latest development in the £27 million Derbyshire County Council project, Digital Derbyshire. The scheme is part of a government initiative which has resulted in more than 1 million homes and businesses now having broadband access nationwide.
Derbyshire County Council’s Coun Joan Dixon said: “Whether it’s for business, shopping, education or socialising, the internet plays such a huge part of daily life for many of us and that will only grow in the future.
“This investment will open up endless business and leisure opportunities.”
