Superfast broadband arrives in Golcar
Over 1600 premises in the village of Golcar now have access to some of the best broadband speeds in the county thanks to the Superfast West Yorkshire & York broadband programme.
Having access to the improved service is boosting the competitiveness of local businesses and offering a whole new range of flexible working, entertainment and learning opportunities for local residents. Fibre broadband benefits include being able to send and receive large amounts of data much more quickly and efficiently and having the ability to run multiple bandwidth-hungry applications at the same time.
Local residents can do more online all at the same time including the weekly shopping from the comfort of the kitchen table, watch the latest blockbuster or simply relax whilst streaming your favourite songs.
Superfast broadband can significantly improve business performance. Different ways of working made possible by Superfast broadband result in the development of new products and services, business diversification and improved competitiveness. Increased use of Skype and Cloud has the potential to reduce the carbon footprint through travel reduction, working from home and remote working.
The upgrade does not happen automatically, so to take advantage of the increased bandwidth, residents and businesses should contact their internet service provider or visit www.get-fibre.co.uk to check your postcode is included in the rollout.
