Connecting Cambridgeshire has begun rolling out superfast broadband to over 90,000 premises across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, which will make us one of the best connected counties in the country by the end of 2015.
New fibre broadband cabinets are now being installed and going live with superfast broadband in locations across the county – bringing opportunities for homes and businesses to benefit from high speed Internet access.
Overall 98% of homes and businesses across the county can expect to have access to fibre-based broadband by the end of 2015. More than 90% of homes and businesses will be able to get broadband speeds of 24 Mbps and higher, with a minimum of 2 Mbps for very nearly 100% of premises
