Many rural businesses get Better Connected to faster broadband

Rural businesses in Horsham district are amongst the 36,000 more homes and businesses now able to connect to better, faster broadband across West Sussex.

New fibre broadband services have been made live in the Horsham exchange area as part of the County Council’s Better Connected project to ensure that more than 90% of the county can get access to superfast broadband by spring next year.

Better Connected is an exciting project to bring better, faster broadband to West Sussex and is funded by the County Council, BT and central government. It means that by spring 2016 more than 90% of properties in West Sussex will have access to fibre-based broadband of a minimum of 24Mbps, and all properties in the areas which are eligible for funding should be able to access basic broadband speeds of a minimum of 2Mbps.

Higher broadband speeds are consistently identified as vital to the continuing growth of many rural businesses. As such, there are already plans and funding in place to extend coverage to 95% by 2017, and it is imperative that full coverage is reached as soon as possible after that.
