County Broadband has extended its fibre network, with nine more Essex villages now ready for service.

The live villages are: Frating, Helions Bumpstead, Hempstead, Langham, Pleshey, Woodham Mortimer, Woodham Walter, Little Maplestead and Barnston.

James Salmon, Director of Sales and New Territories at County Broadband, said: “The pandemic was a real game-changer and sharply demonstrated our reliance on broadband for work, education and entertainment.”

“As the region bounces back from the pandemic, digital connectivity will be the foundation for driving productivity and growth.”

The altnet has pledged to connect half a million rural premises across the east of England to full-fibre broadband by 2027 to help drive economic growth and investment in the region.
