BRAUNSTON is one Northamptonshire village taking an early step towards faster broadband.
TalkTalk is installing its lastest network there to cover Braunston and surrounding villages.
The company is also sponsoring Braunston Village Hall to help with refurbishment costs.
Village hall chairman Alan Dent said: “They got in touch, possibly because they are putting in this broadband, and offered to sponsor the hall and give us £600.
“We’ve got a lot of work to do to bring the building up to standard, so the committee thought Christmas had come when we heard about this!
“It may not sound like a lot, but it’s a big help.”
