Broadband provider BT has revealed it remains committed to providing fibre-optic network technology to East Anglia.
Peter McCarthy-Ward, East of England Director for the company, has stated that it has two major investment programmes underway which will see the super-fast cables introduced to both Norfolk and Suffolk.
Talking to the Yarmouth Mercury, he added that while sites in the area may not have been involved in recent upgrade work, it does not mean it has been forgotten about.
"This is still at an early stage, with only around a quarter of locations to be covered yet announced," he explained.
"Making a compelling case for Norfolk and Suffolk exchanges to be included in future deployments remains a priority for me."
Earlier this week, business leaders in Norfolk told the Eastern Daily Press that companies may move from the region if fibre-optic broadband access is not provided in the near future.
