Internet service provider BT has confirmed it is close to completing work to bring fibre-optic broadband to parts of Greater Manchester.

The company has claimed that around 18,000 homes and businesses in Walkden will benefit from speeds of up to 40Mb when its latest series of network upgrades have been completed in the town.

Residents in the area are following in the footsteps of nearby locations including Bury, Didsbury and Failsworth by gaining access to the services.

BT's North-West Regional Director Mike Blackburn said the technology will allow people to enjoy the internet "as they have never experienced it before".

"The advent of BT fibre-based broadband in Walkden will support local jobs and the local economy and is a vital part of BT's broadband plans for the region," he added.

Other areas which have benefited from BT's efforts to boost super-fast broadband coverage across the UK in recent weeks include Walsall, Low Moor in Yorkshire and Dartford.
