Work to bring superfast broadband to businesses and residents in Derbyshire is continuing.

More than eight miles of cable will be laid to provide faster internet speeds to more than 1,600 firms and homes in areas including Hathersage, Grindleford and Hope Valley.

It is the latest development as part of the £27million Digital Derbyshire project to provide more than 95 per cent of the county’s businesses and residents with access to superfast broadband by the end of 2016.

Councillor Joan Dixon, Derbyshire County Council’s cabinet member for jobs, economy and transport, said: “ This is fantastic news for people living and working in Hathersage, Grindleford and Hope Valley.This investment will open up endless business and leisure opportunities and will help to boost our rural areas, support economic growth and allow local communities to continue to thrive.” For more information about the Digital Derbyshire project, visit www.derbyshire.gov.uk/digitalderbyshire
