Small villages to get superfast internet

Have your say

Hundreds of rural homes and businesses will be able to get connected more quickly after the Superfast Northamptonshire broadband project was awarded £208,700 of Government funding.

Loddington and Dingley are the main focus of the plans, alongside parts of Rockingham. The extra funding follows a county council bid to the Government.

BT is contributing £36,000.

Cabinet member Cllr Andre Gonzalez de Savage said: “It’s great news that additional coverage can be delivered through this first stage of the project, providing more of our rural communities with access to superfast broadband.”
