Superfast Essex aims to extend superfast broadband coverage to nearly 100% with last phase of work

Author: Charlotte Deighton

Even more residents and businesses stand to gain access to superfast broadband, with download speeds of 30Mbps or more, thanks to an additional phase of work being commissioned by Essex County Council (ECC). 

Superfast Essex Phase 4 is expected to be the last phase of work under the County Council’s broadband improvement programme, and is aiming to reach near to 100% superfast broadband connectivity across the county by 2021.

The Superfast Essex Public Consultation 2017 is being run by the Superfast Essex broadband programme until midnight on Thursday 31st August 2017 to reassess which areas will not have access to superfast broadband speeds after all existing plans are completed. The aim is to identify which areas should be eligible for future investment.

Broadband Champions

Superfast Essex is recruiting a team of local community representatives to help share information, updates and other news among local communities as work progresses. As a Broadband Champion we would like you to be a voice in your community passing on local updates about plans in your area, or encouraging people to register their demand 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.

We currently have over 100 Broadband Champions across Essex and there are many more communities where we are still keen to find representatives to help. Check our Broadband Champion list to see if there is a representative in your area. Anyone interested in being a Broadband Champion for their local neighbourhood, where there isn’t already a representative listed, is encouraged to register via our registration form
