Four hundred properties in Lichfield without high-speed broadband can now access it thanks to the multi-million pound Superfast Staffordshire partnership.
The premises not previously able to benefit from commercial roll-out can access faster fibre broadband for the first time. Areas of Lichfield that the project has been able to extend fibre to include parts of the city centre, Leomansley, Pipehill and Streethay.
This follows the installation of around 2,500 metres of fibre optic cable and four new road-side cabinets by engineers from Openreach, BT’s network company.
As a result of this additional investment by Superfast Staffordshire, more than 15,000 homes and businesses in Lichfield are now able to get download speeds of up to 80 megabits per second (Mbps) and upload speeds of up to 20Mbps.
