Broadband provider to extend reach in Co Down
A fibre broadband company has announced it is rolling out its services to more towns across Co Down.
Fibrus said it would bring full fibre broadband to Castlewellan, Newcastle and Ballynahinch during the first half of the year.
The project, which follows a successful pilot scheme in Dundrum, will see rapid broadband made available to around 15,000 homes.
The company is recruiting staff to support the new service.
Fibrus chief executive Dominic Kearns welcomed the scheme.
"This is a big year for Fibrus as we begin a major investment programme in full fibre infrastructure in Northern Ireland," he said.
"Our challenge is to build a scalable organisation that will assist in delivering the next generation of digital infrastructure that will future-proof communities for years to come.

"As the organisation matures and we bring in more people, we hope to keep improving on (the number of homes we deliver to) to assist the Government with its targets for 2025."
