Sandford and Churchill will benefit from ultra-fast broadband, thanks to Thatchers Cider.

The cider-maker has signed up to Bristol-based TrueSpeed and will benefit from internet speeds of 1Gbps.

The business extended access to the whole community by pushing Sandford and Churchill over the 30 per cent sign-up threshold.

This will enable the villages to connect to the network, and schools and village halls will also have access to free broadband.

Ian Dorling, head of IT at Thatchers in Sandford, said: “We’re thrilled to be joining forces with another pioneering local business to help secure a better digital future for Sandford and Churchill.

“Plus the TrueSpeed service will open up a whole new world of connectivity for Thatchers, giving us access to secure, full fibre broadband and ensuring our business runs smoothly at all times.”
