Superfast Essex

Broadband Champions

Superfast Essex is recruiting a team of Broadband Champions across the county to be community ambassadors for the Superfast Essex programme sharing updates and information about what is happening in local neighbourhoods. We would like our Broadband Champions to be a voice in their local community passing on local updates about plans in their area, or encouraging people to register their demand for faster broadband via our Make the Connection Survey. It might mean sending an email to your parish council, asking your local shop to put up a notice about an event, sharing our posts on social media, or simply talking to your neighbour in the street.

Our current Broadband Champions are listed below. There are still quite a few areas we are keen to find a Broadband Champion for!

If your area is not currently listed and you would like to be a Broadband Champion please let us know by completing this short online registration form. A member of the Superfast Essex team will then contact you to confirm your request to become a Broadband Champion has been received.
