A rural hamlet in Cambridgeshire is to be equipped with high-speed fibre-optic broadband, it has been announced.

Consumers living in hamlet Broughton, near Huntingdon, are to benefit as Vtesse Broadband continues its next-generation broadband rollout.

The firm has already linked up the Hertfordshire villages of Hertingfordbury and Birch Green under its Final Third initiative, but Broughton is set to receive even greater bandwidth.

Aidan Paul, Chief Executive of Vtesse, commented: "Broughton was chosen at this stage as it lies close to one of Vtesse's main arterial fibre-optic routes, making the cost of bringing fibre to the community acceptable.

"We are also very keen to test the practicality of pole sharing and this community is largely pole-fed for both power and telecoms."

Last week, BT revealed it was carrying out upgrade work in the Scottish town of Livingston.
