arch full width

iNorthumberland plans to bring superfast broadband to 95% of the county by 2017. However, unlike some previous improvements the faster speeds do not happen on their own. You need to contact an internet service provider in order to upgrade.

Not all internet providers may offer superfast broadband services throughout the county. If our website says it is available but your provider tells you it is not please get in touch with us and we will try and help. Contact us at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
