A group of people from Rutland have clubbed together to pay for a new high speed internet connection for their town.
The residents of Uppingham have taken matters into their own hands, replacing the existing broadband service with the latest fibre optic technology. They now have one of the fastest broadband speeds in the country.
One resident, 84-year-old Dermaine David says it is essential for them to have good broadband speeds to be able to make the most of the evolving technological world.
