The £18.06m Connected Counties scheme has revealed which areas and street cabinets will be the first to receive an upgrade to BT’s “fibre broadband” (FTTC/P) network, which aims to cover 90% of local premises in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire (England) by the end of March 2016.

Virgin Media has today become the last of the big broadband ISPs to launch free Parental Controls (Web Safe), which support the Government demanded network-level filtering technology to help censor “potentially age-inappropriate websites“.
