Superfast broadband will bring jobs to Cumbria - claim

Superfast broadband will bring thousands of jobs to Cumbria over the next 15 years, a report has claimed.

A study by Regeneris Consulting predicts the technology could contribute hundreds of millions pounds to the local economy. BT is currently rolling out super-fast broadband across the county.

Mike Blackburn, BT’s regional director for the north west, said: “This report demonstrates the great benefits that BT’s activities, including its major investment in super-fast broadband, are delivering for Cumbria and will continue to deliver in the years to come.

“BT is playing a vital role in the prosperity and well-being of the region from the massive economic boost provided by our activities to the 8,000 hours of volunteering activity carried out by BT’s people.”

As long as they are not all the same I don't mind how many there are
