Superfast broadband is speeding ahead in Cumbria

The Westmorland Gazette: KEY MOVE: Superfast broadband proving faster than expected KEY MOVE: Superfast broadband proving faster than expected

A MULTI-million pound project to bring superfast broadband to most of Cumbria is way ahead of schedule.

Among the latest communities to receive broadband at speeds of up to 80mbps in the Connecting Cumbria programme are Hackthorpe and Millom – which will both ‘go live’ before the end of March, according to partners Cumbria Council and BT.

Milnthorpe, Sedbergh and Windermere will be among the next to benefit by summer.

Connecting Cumbria says Broughton-in-Furness, Caldbeck and Sedgwick will be enabled before the end of 2014, with Crosthwaite, Gosforth and Grange-over-Sands to follow.
