Cambridgeshire and Peterborough will be among the first areas in the country to benefit from the £5 billion Project Gigabit scheme
, as announced by DCMS on 19 March 2021, bringing gigabit speeds to hard to reach areas.
Connecting Cambridgeshire is consulting broadband infrastructure suppliers about their plans so that we can draw up the intervention area, showing all eligible premises that can’t get gigabit speeds, in preparation for a government-led procurement that is likely to take place from summer 2021. Delivery could start in spring/summer 2022.
To support future planning for digital connectivity, we are inviting interested residents and businesses to take part in this survey to assess current broadband coverage and future demand for gigabit-capable connectivity in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. This survey is open from early April until the end of May 2021.
The information you provide will be used to help us improve broadband coverage in our region. To assist in the results, we are asking for your full address and postcode. If you are happy for us to get in touch about improving your broadband there is space at the end of the survey for you to let us know your contact details.
We will not publish or share any personal details. We will not pass survey details on to any other organisation except those directly involved in compiling and analysing the survey responses.
