The Connecting Cambridgeshire programme is improving the county’s digital infrastructure – including broadband, mobile and public access Wi-Fi coverage – to drive economic growth, help our businesses and communities to thrive and make it easier to access public services.
Connecting Cambridgeshire is led by Cambridgeshire County Council working with Peterborough City Council, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, Government bodies, local councils, and external organisations, including telecoms suppliers and mobile operators.
The superfast broadband rollout has already reached over 96% of homes and businesses, and is aiming for over 99% coverage countywide by the end of 2020.
A third phase of the fibre broadband rollout is underway, and a fourth phase is being planned to reach remaining areas over the next two years.
Under the contract with BT, which includes a clawback clause, an additional funding stream of over £10million has been made available enabling Connecting Cambridgeshire to extend the rollout in the current phase.
