Project aims

Across the whole of Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole, the Superfast Dorset programme will help to provide:

  • 100% (as close as practicably possible) superfast broadband connectivity at 30Mbps by 2020
  • 50% connectivity to ultrafast services and businesses able to access faster services as required
  • 50% take up of superfast services by residents and businesses

What we've achieved so far

Access to superfast broadband has dramatically improved:

  • 620 structures across the county
  • 83,633 properties with access to superfast broadband
  • 96% of the county can get superfast broadband today

50% of people who can access fibre broadband through our programme have taken up a service.

What we're working towards

The Digital Infrastructure Strategy is the plan we're working on to achieve our strategic benefits.
