More residents in the east Manchester area will be able to get online with wireless broadband after an extension of the Eastserve network.
The service was set up to improve digital communications in the eastern part of the city and is now set to cover a bigger area.
Manchester City Council has given a contract to Symera Technologies to run Eastserve as connectivity in the city is taken to the next level.
"The potential for this service is enormous and we will take the project to the next stage and deliver affordable, next generation broadband to many more households and businesses in the area," said the broadband ISP's managing director, Nigel Walker.
"Our objective is to grow Eastserve so it becomes a city-wide project. We want to make it a more powerful system that can carry a lot more users."
Eastserve subscribers have a number of deals on offer to them, from £6 per month for a Bronze package to £20 per month for 4Mb Platinum.
