Chesham to become 'best connected town in the UK'
CHESHAM has been picked by a major internet provider for a new superfast broadband and wifi scheme that will make it ‘the best connected town in the UK’.
Virgin Media last night announced a major project to improve internet connections in the town, with the aim of helping residents and businesses.
The news was announced at the launch of the second annual Chesham Retail and Hospitality awards at the George and Dragon pub last night.
Matt Rogerson, Virgin Media’s head of public affairs said: “Virgin Media has invested over £13 billion investment in a world class broadband network across the majority of UK towns and cities including a large part of Chesham.
“But having network in the ground is only one part of the story. We want to focus on how we can help businesses and households get the most out of that network, in and outside the home, to the benefit of the whole community.
“Over the next few months, Virgin Media hopes to work with local businesses, the local council, other public services and the people of Chesham on a range of initiatives to get the most out of superfast broadband. In doing so, we hope to make Chesham the best connected town in the UK and work with the community to get the best out of superfast broadband."
The town council has been actively involved in the project and is working with Virgin Media on a broad range of plans.
