Wiltshire Council launches consultation on superfast broadband

The telecoms industry and local people and businesses are being encouraged to take part in a consultation which will help bring superfast broadband to most of Wiltshire. Specifically to identify the areas where internet access needs to be improved.

The multi-million pound project, backed by £4.66m in Government funding, aims to provide broadband access to areas that currently cannot get access to superfast broadband, or even standard broadband in some cases. Rural areas are in particular need of support and through this project, in which Wiltshire Council has invested £16m, communities and businesses will have better access to the internet.

Comments from businesses and residents are also welcome to help the councils identify the broadband situation in the area. The councils are keen to hear from people and businesses in areas where there is less than a 2Mbps service available and also from people where superfast broadband is incorrectly shown – a map detailing where superfast broadband is meant to be available will be shown as part of the consultation.

People can get more details about the consultation on the relevant Wiltshire Online page. The consultation closes on March 1.
