Network upgrade boosts rural Derbyshire - Network Cables

Network improvements have brought high-speed connectivity to 6,000 businesses and homes in rural Derbyshire, it has been revealed.

Infrastructure upgrades in the county - which is home to the Peak District National Park - have come as part of the £27.67 million Digital Derbyshire project.

This has been led by by Derbyshire County Council in partnership with BT, as part of a nationwide rollout programme that has now reached more than one million residential and commercial premises.

Homes and businesses in parts of Ashbourne, Repton, Markham Vale, Bolsover, Tibshelf, Holmewood, Ilkeston, Long Eaton and Alfreton have been provided with access to fibre cables for super-fast broadband connections.

And in the coming months, properties in areas such as Darley Dale, Bakewell and Ambergate will also benefit from improved connectivity.

Meanwhile, work is continuing to upgrade Grindleford Exchange, making fibre broadband available to more than 1,600 properties in Hathersage, Grindleford and Hope Valley by autumn 2014.

Bill Murphy, managing director of next generation access for BT, said the Digital Derbyshire programme is making "strong progress", bringing high-speed fibre broadband to some of the most challenging areas of the county.

"The programme shows the power of the public and private sectors working together," he claimed.

"BT has brought technical expertise to the table as well as millions of pounds of investment and, if we can go further, we will do so."

Mr Murphy said this "exciting technology" is providing "a major boost" for local households and businesses, whether they use it to work more efficiently and find new customers or for online learning and leisure.
