Promise of better broadband

BETTER broadband services have been promised in Lynemouth with £50,000 of investment.

TalkTalk has laid out the cash to install new technology in the area that will deliver faster and better-value broadband services for local homes and businesses.

The upgrade is part of a £600million national programme to roll out the Next Generation Network to 93 per cent of the country. Customers who have recently experienced the new network have reported an average increase in broadband speed of 50 per cent.

The company has also supported various community groups, such as Lynemouth Community Trust which received a donation for the local resource centre.

The Next Generation Network will also cover Cresswell and Ellington.
