Dorset Villages Up to Speed


10:13am 21st May 2014

2 West Dorset Villages have been given a boost with the arrival of high speed, fibre optic broadband.

Charmouth and Wooton Fitzpaine are the first to benefit from the multimillion pound rollout across the county.

More than 400 businesses and homes now have the option to take up the faster internet connection.

Leader of Dorset County Council Spencer Flower says the new network will help people of all ages;

"This will breathe new life into Dorset's villages, enabling young people to study on ine and older people to work from home."

Leader of West Dorset District Council Robert Gould said superfast broadband is vital for Dorset's economy;

"It will make it easier for people to work from home, do business online and also download films and television."
