Spark has announced it is going to spend $14 million fast-tracking the roll-out of fast broadband in rural Canterbury.

The work installing the 4G network was going to take three years but will now be completed in 12 months.

Spark says faster broadband will help farmers with soil monitoring, irrigation management or tracking herd movements via remote mobile devices.
