Helping deliver faster broadband across Hereford

24 Jan 2019

More people can now enjoy superfast speeds

Hundreds of homes and businesses across Hereford can now access superfast broadband for the first time thanks to our ongoing partnership with Fastershire.

Speeding up broadband for 2,200 properties

We’ve partnered with Fastershire to roll out superfast broadband to various locations across Hereford and have worked hard to install a number of brand new fibre cabinets. This will see around 2,200 additional homes and businesses benefit from superfast fibre broadband by the end of 2019.

Councillor David Harlow, Cabinet member for economy and communications at Herefordshire Council said: “Much of Fastershire’s work ensures that hard to reach areas of rural Herefordshire can access faster broadband and the stage 3 rollout with Openreach will further ensure that parts of Hereford aren’t left behind. It’s wonderful news that many homes and businesses are already benefiting from this rollout and are able to access a superfast broadband service.”
