Residents of Slippery Ford are now able to achieve broadband speeds of up to 30Mbps.
Internet service provider Boundless Networks have successfully installed a new superfast wireless network in the small rural village of Slippery Ford.
Situated in West Yorkshire, inhabitants were previously only able to receive very poor broadband speeds with the majority unable to achieve anything above 1Mbps.
This was largely due to the fact that it was situated too far from the local Cross Hills telephone exchange which serves around 6,000 homes in the local area.
Northern based ISP Boundless Networks entered into a partnership with local contractor Pennine Plus, who specialise in both aerial and satellite installations, in order to construct the network.
Homes all around Slippery Ford are now able to receive broadband speeds of up to an impressive 30Mbps with local businesses able to request something even faster.
“We are proud and pleased to be the provider of superfast broadband to Slippery Ford, bringing real, positive life changes and opportunities, and hope to offer the same services to other parts of the Worth Valley struggling with connectivity," said David Hood, Chairman of Boundless Networks.
Boundless have already announced their plans to rollout similar superfast networks across other rural, equally inaccessible areas of North Yorkshire and Lancashire over the next three years having already successfully equipped villages like Kilnsey, Conistone, Buckden and Starbotton with this technology.
