Superfast Broadband: a £9 million investment across Shropshire

Fast, reliable broadband connectivity is pivotal to every modern business.

To date, Shropshire Council has invested over £9m in rolling out fibre broadband through its “Connecting Shropshire” broadband programme – and more investment is planned. Being at the forefront of broadband speeds regionally and nationally remains a key strategic and priority for the Council – particularly in realising economic benefits for the county.

The programme is fully supported by key strategic partners and has already provided thousands of businesses and a high proportion of the County’s residents with access to fibre broadband. The programme is funded to continue until 2018.

In addition, Shropshire Council is working closely with the major Mobile Network Operators to roll out ubiquitous access of 4G coverage throughout the county.
