Superfast broadband for every home and business in Norfolk.

That’s the aim of the £11 million funding from the County Council.

Currently, only 92% of us have access to download speeds of 24Mbps+

The Better Broadband for Norfolk (BBfN) programme is set to deliver 95% coverage across the county by the end of March 2020, but the council says it won’t stop there.

Cllr Tom FitzPatrick, Chairman of Norfolk County Council’s Digital Innovation and Efficiency Committee, explains:

“We are committed to making sure that every home and business in Norfolk has access to Superfast Broadband.

Some of the remaining not-spots are the most time-consuming and costly to reach, but this £11m will go a long way to plugging those gaps.”

BBfN rollout started in July 2013 when 42% of Norfolk properties had access to Superfast broadband.

The new contract is expected to be signed early next year.
