Broadband Update

FASTER BROADBAND GETS THE GO AHEAD

Hampshire is to get £5 million of government funding to bring faster broadband to residents and businesses. 

The Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) funding is part of government plans to ensure that everyone in the country will have access to broadband.

The dedicated broadband pages on Hantsweb, the County Council's website, have more information about Hampshire's funding allocation and our campaign,Faster Broadband- getting Hampshire connected.

The headline messages are:

  • It will take time to bring faster broadband to everyone in Hampshire 
  • The overall programme will last for three years 
  • Our immediate next steps are to secure a commercial partner to support and develop detailed implementation plans for the county 
  • We want businesses and the public to continue to register their interest support via our website www.hants.gov.uk/broadband-signup
