Super-fast broadband for town

THE market town of Mirfield in West Yorkshire is set to benefit from better internet access by the spring of next year.

BT has said the town will be one of four Yorkshire towns to benefit from the next phase of its roll-out of super-fast fibre broadband.

They will be able to access super-fast broadband speeds of up to 40Mb/s.

John Anderson, BT's regional director for Yorkshire and the Humber, said: "This latest investment in super-fast broadband is great news for many homes and businesses in Yorkshire. It shows our commitment to bringing super-fast broadband to a wide variety of locations across the region."

Super-fast broadband offers much faster download speeds.
