Shropshire Council


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.

Access to broadband connection is 98.6%

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).
