Simultaneous use

Do more online all at the same time.

People are already used to TV being delivered over phone lines – and now expect it to be HD or 3D. Video on demand and catch-up services, like BBC iPlayer, are becoming the norm. Using the internet for cheap telephone calls was once cutting edge. Now, 40 per cent of calls through Skype are video calls.

Find out what there is to see and do in Essex can give you some great inspiration as to what’s available to see and do around Essex.   There are rolling landscapes speckled with picturesque towns and villages, spectacular gardens, country parks and nature reserves that are all well worth a visit.  The green countryside contrasts sharply with the vast coastline - 350 miles long. Vibrant seaside towns merge with quiet, isolated beaches that in turn become networks of tidal inlets and estuaries, rich in wildlife and perfect for a relaxing day out.
