A year-long trial of a new Wi-Fi network has been launched (Monday 23 June) by Connecting Cambridgeshire and The University of Cambridge ready for when the Tour de France comes to Cambridge on Monday 7 July. Read more here and find out how to access free Wi-Fi here.
Connecting Cambridgeshire is rolling out superfast broadband to over 90,000 homes and businesses across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to make us one of the best connected counties in the country by the end of 2015.
Scores of new fibre broadband cabinets are being installed and are going live with superfast broadband in towns and villages across the county as the roll-out gathers pace. Read the latest news updates here.
This means many more householders and business owners can choose to connect to high speed fibre broadband services in areas that would not otherwise be able to get it.
Overall 98% of premises across the county can expect to have access to fibre-based broadband by the end of 2015. More than 90% of them will be able to get broadband speeds of 24 Mbps and higher, with a minimum of 2 Mbps for very nearly 100%.
