Wireless broadband services are set to be made available to those living in rural parts of Norfolk, under new plans.

According to the Eastern Daily Press, Babcock International is launching a new open access network in the city but is already planning the next phase, which will see coverage extended into the countryside.

Richard Lewis, Project Director of Babcock's next-generation networks division, told the newspaper that areas with a "serious lack" of broadband will benefit from the proposals.

He told the newspaper: "We are looking at bringing broadband to areas with low speeds or no broadband and unlikely to get any in the near term."

Earlier this month, Vtesse confirmed plans to launch a pilot wireless broadband service in Hertford town centre in the next few months.

Laptops, smartphones and a range of other devices will be compatible with the technology, while there will be no service charge for the trial period.
