SOME homes in Thurrock will benefit from superfast broadband by 2015.

BT will run the extra-fast network, at a minimum of 24mbs.

Aveley and Uplands, Chafford and North Stifford, Grays Riverside, Grays Thurrock, Orsett, Tilbury Riverside and Thurrock Park and West Thurrock and South Stifford wards will be first to benefit between July and September 2015.

Chadwell St Mary, Stanford-le-Hope West and Belhus do not yet have a date for when they will benefit.

All very fine if you have the cash. Should be the same price as the slower speed now it's widely available.
