Almost 11,000 homes and businesses across Nottinghamshire will be the first to benefit from the £20m Better Broadband programme, led by Nottinghamshire County Council and BT.

Work will start on the first phase of the high-speed broadband rollout in Arnold and Misterton during April.

This is the beginning of a programme of work that will see over one million metres of fibre optic cable laid and the installation of 2,500 fibre distribution points across the county.

By the time the programme is completed in 2016, 95 per cent of homes and businesses will have access to the high-speed fibre network making Nottinghamshire one of the best digitally connected counties in the country.
