In a UK first, Hereford Cathedral is to allow broadband antennae to be installed on its tower.

Local service provider allpay Broadband has been granted permission from the Diocese of Hereford to carry out the work.

Four access points have been installed on each of the four sides of the cathedral bell tower.

And in addition, a point-to-point antenna has been put in place on the south face of the cathedral.

The antennae will enable people living in rural communities around Hereford to take advantage of high-speed broadband services.

People living within a five-mile radius of the city centre should be able to take advantage of the service.

Every church in the diocese will now be able to apply for allpay broadband equipment to be installed.

Local businessman Tony Killeen said this was a positive move both for allpay Broadband and for residents across Herefordshire, many of whom have been caught on the wrong side of the digital divide.
