This week saw the completion of the work to install Superfast Broadband to the Templefields area of the Harlow Enterprise Zone.
Phase 1 of this work was delivered in the June 2014 which saw the new service made accessible to businesses along River Way up to and including Stort Mill. The second phase has now been completed and went live this week for businesses at the eastern end of River Way. This now means that all businesses in the Templefields area of the Enterprise Zone can now access the new service which provides download speeds of up to 80 mb.
Businesses interested in taking up the service should contact their existing Internet Service Provider to arrange a transfer to the new fibre optic cable service. The provision of the service has been enabled through Superfast Essex, a partnership between BT and Essex County Council. It also delivers one of the commitments made by the Government to businesses locating in an Enterprise Zone. As well as access to superfast broadband, businesses can also benefit from a relaxed planning regime and from business rate discounts.
