People have the chance to find out more about the launch of faster broadband in Rutland at roadshow events next week.

Superfast broadband is set to become available for residents and businesses throughout the county this summer as part of the Digital Rutland project.

People are now being given the opportunity to ask questions and find out more about the scheme, which is being run by Rutland County Council and BT.
