A new broadband network will be installed across the city of Coventry, giving businesses in the area the chance to use wireless broadband.
Microlease Calibration Services and Optilan Communications have won contracts to calibrate the test equipment used to install fibre optic cables, with 300 CCTV cameras also being connected, reports the Birmingham Post.
The development is part of the Coventry Best for Business (B4B) project, which is aiming to make the city the best place in the UK to do businesses.
A contract has recently been signed by Coventry B4B with one internet service provider to supply free broadband to businesses that fall within a specified Business Improvement District (BID).
The group said in a statement: "BT is the UKs leading telecommunications company and we are delighted to be partnering with them in this new venture. We aim to launch the broadband service in July."
