Homeowners and businesses across the Greater Manchester area now have access to fibre-optic broadband services, BT has revealed.
The broadband provider has announced that 100,000 properties across areas including Bury, Didsbury and Fallsworth have access to super-fast internet courtesy of its latest investment plans.
As the service has been launched on an open, wholesale basis, people now have the chance to register their interest with broadband providers about using the infrastructure.
Mike Blackburn, BT's North-West Regional Director, said the installation of the network was a vital first step in offering people across the region access to new applications.
He added: "As BT's rollout of super-fast broadband gathers pace, many more customers in other parts of the north-west can expect to experience the benefits of the technology over the coming months."
BT has also introduced fibre-optic broadband technology in parts of London, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Essex over recent months.
