Blackpool Council has secured £2.7m of government cash to activate high-tech, better broadband, the full length of the tramline.
The Enterprise Zone at Blackpool Airport will be one of the first locations to benefit. The multi-million pound investment will boost internet speeds and connectivity. Businesses will get faster digital access through future 5G technology.
Enabling Better Broadband
New cables have to be laid first to enable connection. Work will start at the airport Monday 4th February, completion by May 2019. There will be low level traffic disruption as the majority of the work is on the verges, not the carriageway.
Blackpool Council is partnering with The Network People (TNP) to access the Local Full Fibre Network, available from 2020.
