The programme has been working to upgrade the existing broadband infrastructure to enable residents and businesses to access faster online speeds, aiming to reach 97% of the county with superfast fibre broadband by 2020. So far 85,000 homes and businesses have been enabled to access the upgraded network. Find out more at www.superfastessex.org.
