Broadband for your business

Superfast broadband enables businesses to work more effectively:

  • Work from home. Reliable broadband means you can be as productive at home as you are in an office. Superfast Dorset will help build the 21st century infrastructure that enables our businesses to compete on a level footing regardless of location

  • Work collaboratively. Online file-sharing and video-conferencing mean you can communicate faster with other people wherever they are, and reduce time spent travelling

  • Work in real time. No more annoying lags or pauses for media-heavy files

  • Higher turnover. Businesses adopting the power of digital are experiencing higher turnover or funding than their less digital counterparts

  • Reach more customers. People in the UK love online shopping - we spent £52.25 billion online in 2015. You can also reach a global market potentially gaining new customers worldwide

  • Boost the Dorset economy. Dorset will be a more attractive location for businesses, providing continued employment and new high tech jobs in rural areas
