In 2012, the County Council signed a contract with BT to deliver faster broadband speeds to as many of the 20% of Surrey premises as possible that had been excluded from commercial rollout plans. More than 80,000 premises have already benefitted from the Superfast Surrey Programme, and combined with the commercial rollouts, has resulted in approximately 96% of all Surrey residents and businesses being able to access fibre download speeds of 15mbps or above.
In February 2017, the County Council announced the Superfast Surrey second phase of deployment. Approximately 6,000 additional homes and businesses are anticipated to benefit from faster broadband speeds in the next two years and by April 2019, subject to completion of existing commercial plans, approximately 98% of Surrey residents and businesses will be able to access Superfast Broadband.
