Superfast Essex programme – 100,000 and counting!
100,000 more Essex homes and businesses can now access superfast speeds of 30Mbps and above in the fibre infrastructure rollout being co-ordinated by Essex County Council, Openreach and Gigaclear.
More than 385km of fibre cabling has now been installed – roughly the distance from Earth to the International Space Station! The Superfast Essex programme is three months ahead of schedule, with work planned to reach more than 144,000 homes and businesses by early 2020.
Essex County Council have also begun planning work to address the remaining gaps in coverage by the end of 2021. To find out if your home or business is due to be upgraded through the Superfast Essex rollout, check an interactive map.
Anyone not currently due for an upgrade can register their demand for faster broadband by completing the Make the Connection Survey.
