ILLINGWORTH is the next area of Calderdale to benefit from faster broadband.

More than 190,000 more homes and businesses in Yorkshire will have access to faster broadband by the spring of next year, BT have announced.

Boston Spa, Guisley, Cudworth, Goldthorpe, Normanton, Rawdon and Ilkley will join Illingworth among the next communities in the region to be included in the latest roll-out of BT’s Next Generation copper broadband service.

Broadband speeds of up to 20 megabits per second – more than double the maximum speeds previously available to the majority of UK homes and businesses.

The 30 communities in Yorkshire and the Humber are among more than 300 UK exchanges included in the latest phase of the programme announced today.

By the spring of next year around 78 per cent of premises in Yorkshire and the Humber are expected to have been upgraded.
