County Broadband is working with its build partners AB Installs and Highway Workforce to extend its network to nine villages in Suffolk (Bentley, Brantham, Capel St. Mary, Copdock, Washbrook, Layham, Nayland-with-Wissington, Raydon, and Stratford St. Mary.)
Backed by a £146m private investment from Aviva Investors, the altnet has committed to deliver its full fibre networks to half a million premises across the East of England by 2027.
James Salmon, Director of Sales and New Territories at County Broadband, said: “It’s clear from the homes and businesses we speak to that the existing copper-based infrastructure simply can’t keep up with modern demands from remote working, and streaming to accessing online services.
“In the recent Budget the government emphasised the need to deliver long term, sustainable economic growth. To achieve this, we must have the underlying digital infrastructure in place.”
