MORE broadband users in Worcestershire can now upgrade to a faster service after a faster service has been rolled out to more towns. 

More than 14,200 residents and businesses in the county now have access to 12 different internet service providers on the gigabit-capable service.

Towns where the service is available include Droitwich, Evesham, Offenham, Stourport-on-Severn and Wychbold.

Some Worcester residents will also have the full fibre service available to them which is a more reliable internet service and allows up to 1Gbps download speeds for those homes and businesses using its network. 

It has been brought to Worcestershire by a full-fibre network provider known as Fibre Heroes - different to BT’s network, which national service providers sell their services on. 

James Warner, managing director of Fibre Heroes, said: “We’re really pleased to bring the residents and businesses of Worcestershire more choice in their broadband provider, stimulating competition and making available best-in-class internet services for the county."
