The county council and BT have now publicly announced the outline timetable and next steps for the superfast broadband programme. About 15,000 homes and businesses in rural Surrey will have access to the superfast broadband fibre network by the end of September, and a further 40,000 properties in a year's time.
By the end of 2014 virtually every business and home is expected to be able to get superfast access.
This very much keeps Surrey at the forefront of the superfast broadband roll-out nationally and means we remain on track to make Surrey the best connected county in the UK. The benefits for our residents will be massive as our Superfast Surrey programme team works with partners and communities to help bridge the digital divide. Helping businesses trade online will provide an estimated £28 million boost to the economy annually while virtually everyone in Surrey will be able to enjoy fast, reliable internet access so they stay ahead in the digital world.
