Weymouth in Dorset is currently reaching poor internet speeds of around 3 mbps, when London can get up to 100mb in some areas. The borough feels they are losing out on Olympics Economy benefits because of their poor internet speeds, but it is not all bad news.
Nearby in Portland, a telecoms point has been installed which is capable of running Super Fast Fibre Optic connections. This has been made for media coverage surrounding the Olympics, for the relevant media companies to make use of. This infrastructure was voted upon whether it would stay after the Olympics ended, and luckily for Weymouth it will. The work just needs to be done to allow 20,000 homes to be capable of receiving this broadband internet.
The work was originally supposed to be completed before the Olympic actually started but it was delayed and has been scheduled to now be completed after the Olympic games have finished.
The borough next door, Portland, does have fast internet, however it has not yet been made possible for the people of Weymouth, but it will definitely be coming a lot sooner than some other more remote places that are still working with speeds less than a megabyte, which I personally experienced during my time in Ceredigion, Wales.
