Help to bring superfast broadband to
We are working with Cambridgeshire County Council and other
partners across the county to bring better broadband coverage to
Peterborough through the Connecting Cambridgeshire project.
The plan is to provide access to superfast broadband to at least
90 per cent of homes and businesses by 2015.
We need residents, businesses, parishes, and community groups to
show suppliers where there is demand for broadband to attract
Superfast broadband is essential to helping our local economy to
thrive so that everyone benefits. Telecoms providers generally
offer good broadband coverage in urban and commercial areas, but
this does not reach enough rural areas in our region.
Investing in superfast broadband will help our existing
businesses to grow, bring innovative, new companies to the area and
create new jobs.
Increasing broadband coverage in rural areas will encourage
local enterprise, give more people the flexibility to work from
home, save transport costs and reduce congestion.
Wider access to broadband will also bring opportunities to
provide health, education and public services in better ways such
as supporting elderly and vulnerable people to live independently,
and helping learners to develop new skills.
