MP hails superfast broadband boost for Ribble Valley
4:55pm Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
THE introduction of superfast broadband in the Ribble Valley has been hailed as a ‘huge boost’ by Nigel Evans MP.
Mr Evans met with the new boss of BT, Gavin Patterson, at an event in Westminster and said that the project would ‘ensure that rural communities are not left behind.
The borough council has said the upgrade of the network will help 355 businesses in the area and that upload speeds in particular will see a marked improvement.
The scheme is set to finish in 2015.
Mr Evans said: “I told him of the importance of fibre optic broadband to the Ribble Valley which, given the constituency’s rural nature, will mean that families and businesses will benefit hugely from this infrastructure upgrade.”
