Fibre-optic broadband comes to town

A Horsham-based business is offering super-fast fibre-optic broadband in Horsham , with speeds of 40 megabytes available as of the start of August.

Home Telecom Ltd, a telephone line and broadband company based in Queen Street, is offering higher speeds than the four to seven megabytes previously available.

With BT upgrading the local telephone exchanges, residents and local businesses can now take advantage of the faster speeds through several packages.

The first two homes went live on August 1 followed by another 200, even with BT’s commitments to the Olympic Games.

Peppa Barnett, of Home Telecom, said: “Broadband has come a long way since the old dial-up days. It has now become a very important part of day-to-day life.”
