The next 15 communities to benefit from the £130 million Superfast Lancashire programme have been announced by Lancashire County Council and BT.

During April, May and June high-speed fibre broadband will start to become available in Eccleston, Croston, and Mawdesley in Chorley among others across Lancashire.

County Councillor Sean Serridge, Champion for Digital Inclusion at Lancashire County Council, said: “This is a great achievement and shows we are well on the way to achieving our goal of providing 97 per cent of the county with high-speed broadband by the end of next year.

“Faster fibre broadband is hugely important for the county both economically and socially.

“There can be few areas of modern life which are not touched in some way by broadband connectivity – whether it’s supporting how we work, how we learn, how we communicate with friends and family, or how we entertain ourselves.”
