HOMES and businesses in Yapton and Eastergate will benefit from faster broadband.
BT has announced the villages are among the latest communities in the county to receive upgrades as part of its roll-out of the next generation service delivered over copper lines.
The investment will make available download speeds of up to 20 megabits per second – more than double the fastest speed previously available.
John Weaver, BT’s south east regional director, said: “Faster broadband will deliver important benefits for people across West Sussex, whether they are running a business, working or studying from home, doing the weekly shop online, downloading films and TV programmes or keeping in touch with friends and family around the world. It can all be done better using faster broadband.
“That’s why BT is determined to bring faster speeds to as many homes and businesses as possible, and we are keen to work with the public sector to find solutions for even the most challenging locations.”
