Thales lands broadband order

French defence and engineering group Thales, has won a contract to build a new “fibre” based broadband network.
The project in the South Yorkshire region, will involve replacing old copper based lines from telephone exchanges up to street cabinets with new fibre-optic cable. It will cover around almost 600,000 homes in the region, with possible speeds of up to 50 Mbps.

According to Times online, Thales beat off competition from the likes of BT to win the contract. It is being backed by the Yorkshire Forward Regional Development Agency, who believe it could lure small businesses in the area.
