In December, the new fibre broadband arrived in Coleford with five new cabinets being placed in and around the area. This now provides 2,000 homes with broadband and businesses access to fibre broadband.
Following the Coleford launch, the Fastershire team have switched on six cabinets in Cinderford, one in Lydbrook and five in Whitecroft giving another 4,000 homes and businesses access to faster broadband.
