High-speed broadband services are to be piloted in parts of Hertfordshire which were once earmarked as unlikely to receive such technology, it has been revealed.
Vtesse Networks is deploying the technology, which is expected to offer connection speeds of up to 48Mb in Birch Green, Bramfield, Hertingfordbury and Stapleford in the coming months.
ISPreview.co.uk reports that the areas had previously been described as Final Third communities, parts of the UK which were never expected to receive super-fast services for both economic and technical reasons.
Aidan Paul, Chief Executive of Vtesse Networks, told the news provider: "We are delighted to be able to bring super-fast broadband to communities in our home town of Hertford that may never otherwise have received them."
He added that the company wants to highlight the business case for providing broadband services in such areas.
Internet service provider VFast recently used WiMax technology to bring connection speeds of up to 25Mb to the Kent village of Barham.
