News: Super-fast broadband set for Rotherham


Thales, the French defence and engineering group, has been selected as the preferred bidder to build and manage a super-fast “next generation” fibre broadband network in Britain. It will serve 1.3 million homes across Sheffield, Doncaster, Barnsley and Rotherham, as well as 40,000 small businesses and is set to provide speeds of 50mbps. Yorkshire Forward believes the Digital Region project could lure small businesses to the area. It will be funded by public money, partly from the European Union, and private investment.
