Superfast Essex is continuing its rollout programme and working to connect as many people as possible in this unprecedented time.
The Government has classed people working within the telecommunications sector as ‘key workers’. Unfortunately, there have been a number of reports in Essex of incidents involving telecoms engineers being subjected to verbal abuse and intimidation by members of the public. We ask that you please help support the broadband rollout across Essex by respecting the important work these engineers are doing.
Please note, the Superfast Essex programme communications resource is being temporarily redeployed in order to support the Essex County Council response to the pandemic which means it will take longer for us to answer your enquiries submitted via our contact form and social media. We would encourage you to make the use of the interactive map and information on our website to help answer any questions as much as possible. We will do our best to respond any enquiries sent to us as soon as we can.
Any significant updates to this position will be published on this page.
