Weymouth super-fast broadband service has finally gone live - eight months after it was originally supposed to launch.

Back in 2011, BT announced plans to upgrade its network infrastructure in the Dorset port, ahead of the Olympic Games.

Weymouth co-hosted the sailing events with Portland, however a construction ban in the run-up to the event means the broadband upgrade deadline was missed.

Only now have high-speed broadband services arrived in the town, reports the BBC.

Approximately 9,000 homes and businesses in Weymouth are now able to take advantage of faster download speeds.

A spokesperson for BT said the firm tries to give "as accurate information as possible on specific dates" when planning broadband upgrades.

"But it is important to bear in mind these indications are usually a year or more ahead," the representative stated.

"These dates can move back and forward, they can change either way."
