Keycom chief executive Meri Braziel said: “This is a major installation involving 200 wireless access points, 14 kilometres of data cable and five kilometres of fibre optics to link all accommodation and community buildings to superfast broadband services
“It will mean that thousands of people can now access fast and reliable internet and enjoy unlimited downloads without the need for lengthy contracts or costly line rental services.
