Superfast next generation broadband for Mirfield residents
Local people of Mirfield are poised to discover the good things that superfast broadband can bring!
High speed broadband means you can multi-stream news, information, music and films on several devices at the same time, communicate with friends and family around the world, apply for jobs, save money online using banking and shopping services, access news and learning. Mirfield residents who currently only receive maximum broadband speeds of around 6 to 8Mbps, are set to encounter a whole new online world!
Ten new green fibre broadband cabinets are being built so that local households and businesses can connect to the exciting technology. The work is being carried out as part of the Superfast West Yorkshire and York broadband programme, jointly funded by West Yorkshire Combined Authority, BT, European Regional Development Fund 2014-2020 and central government. Eighty-five thousand more homes and businesses now have access to better, faster broadband as a result of the programme.
If you’re in an upgraded area, your access to fibre-optic broadband service is not automatic. You need to contact your internet service provider (ISP) to ask about an upgrade or go online to compare offers available from different providers to find the best deal for you.
