Norfolk has secured £8m funding from the Department for Digital Culture, Media and Sport to connect high speed fibre to 372 public sector locations across the county.
This Gigabit connectivity will improve the digital connectivity, efficiency and effectiveness of our public sector services. It will also increase opportunities for residents and businesses in those areas to take advantage of the extended fibre network by applying through the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme.
You can keep up to date with progress by using our interactive map.
Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme
If there are other residents and businesses in your area who want to install a gigabit capable connection, you may be able to benefit from a voucher worth £500 as part of a group project led by a supplier.
You can approach a supplier in your area to see if there are any group projects you may be able to join. If there are no projects in your area, you may be able to join up with other residents and local businesses and approach a supplier directly.
Homes and businesses in rural areas may be eligible for additional funding. The Government has just announced a scheme for rural premises experiencing speeds below 30 Mbps.
Properties will be eligible for between £500 and £1,500 per resident to support the cost of installing new gigabit-capable connections.
You can check whether you are likely to be eligible for the rural gigabit voucher by using the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme's postcode checker.
