Nantwich in Cheshire has become the latest town to enjoy access to super-fast broadband, it has been reported.

More than 8,000 homes and businesses in the town are due to join the digital revolution in the coming weeks as BT continues its rollout of broadband internet across the county.

Once BT's broadband programme is complete, the total number of premises in Cheshire with access to high-speed internet will stand at more than 283,000.

Councillor David Brown, performance and capacity portfolio holder for Cheshire East Council, told This is Staffordshire: "This is very welcome news for Cheshire from BT. Super-fast broadband is an essential building block to economic recovery and growth."

Openreach, BT's local network arm, intends to ensure two-thirds of the UK is hooked up to super-fast broadband by 2014.

This week, BT also announced it had passed a "key fibre milestone" in its broadband provision by rolling out fibre-optic broadband to ten million UK premises.
