City Fibre Broadband work to continue

City Fibre will soon be back at work installing fibre optic cabling in Newport Pagnell, starting after Easter. Their break follows a nasty attack on their staff. Newport Pagnell Town Council would like to remind people that these workers are regarded as key workers by the Government, and are fully entitled to be undertaking their job in the current COVID-19 outbreak. Broadband communication will be critical to the ability of the economy to regenerate after the outbreak is over, and is also key in terms of improving emergency contact with the NHS.
