About the programme
Connecting Shropshire is a programme bringing faster broadband to areas where it isn’t economically viable for commercial companies to provide it.
We aim to:
See that superfast* broadband is available to all premises in the Shropshire Council area as soon as possible;
Work with Government on their aspiration to deliver a step change to gigabit** broadband in the Shropshire Council area;
Support businesses and residents in embracing and optimising the use of broadband as part of everyday life;
Attract commercial digital infrastructure investment and support suppliers in their deployment objectives.
*superfast broadband is capable of delivering 30 megabits per second (mbps).
**gigabit broadband is capable of delivering 1,000 megabits per second (mbps).
