SUPER-fast broadband will be available to the first homes and businesses in Portsmouth’s North End, BT has announced.
More than 20,000 local householders and firms can get high-speed access as engineers complete the local upgrade in the coming weeks.
It will take the number of properties in Hampshire with access to the high-speed technology to around 325,000.
MP Penny Mordaunt said: ‘This latest BT investment is very good news for Portsmouth. Super-fast broadband will create new opportunities for everyone in the district giving our businesses a competitive edge as well as opening new doors for people of every age and background, and I hope that the whole city will soon be able to enjoy its benefits.’
BT’s John Weaver said: ‘The arrival of super-fast broadband in North End is a huge boost for local households and businesses.’
