Accelerating Bedford - Part of the Central Superfast Project*

Fairer and Faster Broadband across Bedford Borough

Local delivery of the national Rural Broadband Programme (to deliver 90% superfast broadband coverage) is now seeing results on the ground in the Borough with the project’s first local superfast cabinet going live on 20th June 2014 and many more since then (see Cabinet News - Project Cabinet Progress).

Meanwhile the Mayor and Executive Committee have agreed to more than match Government funding for local delivery of the national Superfast Extension Programme increasing superfast broadband coverage to over 95% of premises.  See below for the State Aid Consultation relating to this.

See the latest Project Newsletter for more on all the above and other broadband progress and possibilities and contact Paul Vann ( with any comments on the Council’s plans for the roll-out of superfast broadband.
