Broadband

                           

We are committed to the extension of superfast broadband coverage to the county and are working with partners and BT as part of the Connected Counties programme to deliver this.

How we're making it happen

                           

The Connected Counties programme is targeted with making fibre broadband available to over 90% of homes and businesses in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire by April 2016.

That's approximately 734,500 premises in total, 682,000 from BT’s commercial deployments and 52,500 as a result of the Connected Counties programme. The programme also aims to ensure that everyone in the two counties has access to a minimum of 2 Mbps broadband speeds (fast enough to watch BBC iPlayer).

The programme is being funded jointly by both Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire County Councils, the Local Enterprise Partnerships for each county, BT and the Government’s Broadband Delivery UK team (BDUK).

We have invested £0.5m so far to bring superfast broadband to key Business Parks (Maylands, Centennial and Gunnels Wood).
