In this issue of In Touch you can read about how thousands of people living in parts of Mansfield will be among the first in the country to benefit from Openreach’s ultrafast broadband rollout.
You can also read about the multi-million pound broadband extension in Leicestershire and the 5 year celebration of our Rutland partnership. There’s also news of a Community Fibre Partnership to bring high-speed fibre broadband to Derbyshire villages and how one resident benefiting from a similar scheme in a Leicestershire village says the arrival of superfast fibre has helped protect house prices.
There’s an interesting case study about one of our armed forces recruits who took a step into an engineering career with BT and it was back to the classroom for the BT's East Midlands board. And finally BT celebrated 80 years of the 999 service.
