The Superfast Essex broadband programme would like to invite Parish/Town Council members and Broadband Champions to attend an information event to hear an update on the progress of the Essex broadband rollout. This event will be a follow up to the Countywide Parish Engagement Event held in July 2016 and will provide an overview of all phases of the Superfast Essex broadband programme and include a chaired one hour Q&A session.
Arrival, registration and light buffet/refreshments from 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
The programme has been working to upgrade the existing broadband infrastructure to enable residents and businesses to access faster online speeds, aiming to reach 97% of the county with superfast fibre broadband by 2020. So far almost 67,000 homes and businesses have been enabled to access the upgraded network. Find out more at www.superfastessex.org.
