SolwayComms Broadband coverage widened helped by City Council
Solway Communications – alias “The Waterproof Broadband Company” – is extending its free broadband coverage for Carlisle homeowners and businesses hit by the December 2015 flooding with the help of two former CCTV poles owned by Carlisle City Council.
Solway Communications Engineering Director Antony Cross said: “We are grateful for the permission given by the City Council. This will help us make 100 Meg broadband available free to almost the whole of the area hit by flooding in the East of the City.
"We hope it will help homeowners and businesses in the area, and those helping them such as building contractors and utility employees, including BT engineers.”
United's media officer Andy Hall said: “Our free broadband partnership with SolwayComms for the affected area project is gathering momentum now. It’s great to see the City Council get on board with this initiative. Carlisle United is just pleased to be able to partner with Carlisle’s own telecoms network to help our great city in another way.”
