More than £1m of extra government funding has been allocated to give rural communities in Worcestershire high-speed internet access.
About 1,400 homes and businesses in rural parts of the county would benefit from the cash, the county council said.
The money is in addition to £3.35m already earmarked for the rest of the county.
It is being provided as part of plans to connect 90% of UK homes and businesses to superfast broadband.
A total of £1,147,032 will be spent by the council in rural communities including Abberley, Defford and Besford, Honeybourne and Pebworth, Ombersley, Doverdale and Holt, Welland, Castlemorton and Birtsmorton.
