About the project

£5.022m Local Growth Fund was awarded as part of a £15.3m project to address market failure in broadband connectivity particularly in rural areas in Shropshire through fixed and wireless broadband infrastructure.

The aim is for 97% of premises in Shropshire to have access to superfast broadband.

This project will upgrade broadband provision to 64,328, including 51,792 premises with superfast broadband, 9,988 receiving a fibre connection of greater than 2mbps, and 2,548 having access to a basic level of broadband (at least 2mbps).
