A reminder to keep an eye on www.betterbroadbandsuffolk.com  for the latest news on local broadband activity led by Suffolk County Council.


This includes information about:

  • When better broadband will be available in your area
  • Options for people with current broadband speeds of less than 2mbps
  • Consultation on reinvesting to further extend coverage

The UK government is committed to providing every home and business across the country with access to a basic broadband service.

If you can’t get a broadband speed of at least 2Mb per second, you could qualify for a subsidised connection worth up to £350 to boost your internet speed.

The scheme is delivered in partnership with Local Broadband Projects across England, Scotland and Northern Ireland
