A boost for business as superfast broadband arrives in the Northampton Waterside Enterprise Zone

Superfast fibre broadband has arrived at the Northampton Waterside Enterprise Zone more than three months early.


Northamptonshire County Council and BT have announced that three of eight new roadside fibre broadband cabinets planned for the enterprise zone are now ‘live’ – thanks to the multi-million pound Superfast Northamptonshire project.   


Openreach, BT’s local network business which is installing the fibre network for the County Council, is pressing ahead with the engineering works. When this phase of work is completed later this year, it’s anticipated that the new ‘fibre to the cabinet’ technology will be available to more than 180 premises in the enterprise zone, many of which are businesses.
