UK Government Satellite Broadband Scheme

The Satellite Broadband Scheme is now live and open for applications. It has been introduced to help those with the slowest speeds access a basic broadband service of at least 2Mbps, and is the technology which has been identified to help those areas indicated on the Superfast Essex interactive map as due for ‘Non-fibre upgrade (minimum 2Mbps) by 2016’. Full details and the link to apply is available from this page on our website: www.superfastessex.org/satellite. A press release has been issued and can be viewed on the Superfast Essex website here.

Fibre rollout halfway milestone – 60,000

The main fibre rollout has now reached 60,000 homes and businesses, which means the halfway milestone for the overall fibre rollout programme (120,000 to be reached in Phase 1, 2a and 2b – Rural Challenge Project) has been reached. Our website now includes interactive map and indicates the annual timescales for the Phase 2 rollout. Take a look at: www.superfastessex.org/maps.
