Broadband

Although superfast broadband is available to more consumers than ever before, even in the UK nearly 10% of premises cannot receive a broadband speed greater than 10Mbit/s, rising to around 48% of premises in rural areas.

Having access to high quality, widespread broadband is essential to our working and social lives. As we continue to digitally transform, the infrastructure that serves businesses and individuals will only continue to impact further on how much we can achieve. How can we ensure that broadband restrictions do not impact on success?
