MORE homes and businesses across Doncaster will have access to faster broadband by the summer, a phone giant has said.

BT has been upgrading services for thousands of properties in order to offer broadband speeds of up to 20 megabits per second - twice the maximum speeds previously available.

Tickhill and Adwick-le-Street are to be included in the next phase of work and is expected to be completed by next summer.

Doncaster villages and towns including Armthorpe, Hatfield Woodhouse, Barnby Dun, Thorne and Rossington have been pinpointed as areas to have access to ‘super-fast’ broadband.

The £2.5 billion project by BT aims to bring faster speeds to two-thirds of UK premises by the end of 2014.
