We want everyone in South Gloucestershire to have access to fast, reliable broadband.
South Gloucestershire Council receives funding from central government to help us bring faster broadband to areas where it isn’t economically viable for commercial companies to provide. Together with our partner, Openreach, we’ve so far provided superfast* broadband access to more than 96% of households and businesses. But there’s further to go.
We’ve done our sums and know that current funding won’t allow us to deliver superfast broadband access to everyone. Connecting up our most rural areas and isolated properties is challenging and expensive, often requiring new infrastructure, so we’re working with our partner to use what money we have to provide access to as many households and businesses as we possibly can.
