Newcastle Plans 97% Superfast Broadband Coverage

Newcastle City Council has revealed plans to bring fibre broadband to 97 per cent of local properties.

As part of the government’s super-connected cities initiative, the local authority is planning to bring fibre optic broadband within reach of 97 per cent of homes and businesses by 2015.

The scheme, dubbed Go Digital Newcastle, also aims to roll out free Wi-Fi across the city centre, along with creating a cloud computing centre, business connection vouchers and an enterprise support programme.
