7,000 Jobs on Offer

THE UK's fastest broadband is coming to Tyneside where 7,000 jobs are being created.

Gateshead Council revealed today that is has joined forces with Alcatel-Lucent Telecoms to bring a super superhighway to the pounds 300m Baltic Business Quarter.

Work has already started on installing miles of underground fibre optic cables right across the 21-hectare site so the system can be up and running by early next spring.
