Mid Sussex Wins Broadband Funding

Mid Sussex is one of thirteen areas to have been awarded a share of £95m to help with the rollout of ultrafast Broadband which is currently available to only 3% of the population. The service delivers speeds of up to 1GB per second but is more expensive to deploy as fibre optic cables are used instead of copper cables.

The funding was announced by the Chancellor in his Spring Statement this week, and is part of a ‘local full fibre initiative’ announced by the government.

Other areas to benefit include Manchester, Belfast, the Highlands of Scotland, London, Blackpool, Cardiff, Coventry, Wolverhampton, North Yorkshire, Blackpool, Cambridgeshire, Armagh and Portsmouth.

It will be well received locally as many businesses who are BHBPA members have complained about the lack of speed of broadband provision over recent years.
