Connecting Cambridgeshire shortlisted for Superfast Award

June 8, 2018

Connecting Cambridgeshire has been shortlisted for the inaugural Connected Britain Awards to recognise innovation and achievement at the forefront of Britain’s digital transformation.

The superfast broadband rollout programme led by Cambridgeshire County Council has been selected for the Superfast Award category for its work in bringing high speed internet access to over 96% of the county, with ambition of reaching over 99% by 2020.

The Superfast Award category is among the mostly hotly contested of the entire ceremony with nine broadband programmes and providers shortlisted from applications from across Britain’s connectivity landscape, from local and national government bodies to small, niche operators, as well as huge multi-national firms.  The winners will be named at the Connected Britain event at the Business Design Centre, London on Tuesday 19 June.
