Superfast Essex is working to extend superfast broadband coverage to 97 percent of Essex by 2020.
We held an Open Market Review (OMR) in July 2016 to find out where broadband provision is already available or planned and to identify areas still requiring investment.
We also held a public consultation in September/October 2016 about the availability of superfast broadband across the county. Both will help inform our plans for a ‘Phase 3’ rollout.
Superfast Essex has now produced an updated interactive State Aid map of broadband coverage, based on information and feedback received through the OMR and consultation, identifying the areas eligible for investment as part of Phase 3.
Superfast Essex has now invited broadband network operators across the UK to bid for the Phase 3 work.
