Number of broadband users in Northamptonshire rockets

40% of homes and businesses have already signed up to fibre broadband Credit: ITV News Anglia

The number of people signing up for high-speed broadband in Northamptonshire has increased in the last two years.

Figures from BT reveal more than 40% of homes and businesses have now signed up, compared to less than 10% in 2014.

More than 70% of households in Orlingbury near Wellingborough are now using fibre broadband.

Local businesses and residents are seeing the benefits that a super-fast fibre broadband service can bring. This may be helping to boost the bottom line for business through time and money saving applications, or at home, enabling the whole family to go on-line at the same time without frustrating buffering delays.
