We aim to futureproof broadband connectivity and mobile coverage across our region.

More than 215,000 homes and businesses can now access high speed broadband – but many businesses are still struggling to access the fibre network. The LEP is investing £7.7million in the rollout of superfast broadband to ensure 77,000 extra homes and businesses will have speeds of more than 24mps by the end of this year.

Connectivity to broadband is particularly problematic in rural areas. We are aware that much of south and north Shropshire and west Herefordshire has slow broadband (0-10
Mbit/s). In some areas, this accounts for over 80% of premises.
