Faster broadband is being rolled out across Herefordshire and Gloucestershire by the Fastershire broadband project.
Fastershire is a partnership between Herefordshire Council and Gloucestershire County Council and aims to provide access to faster broadband to all who need it is that by the end of 2019/20. This is part of our commitment to the digital transformation of Herefordshire, which is vital for the future of our local economy and those who live and work in our communities.
Fastershire is not just about technology. The project also includes social and digital inclusion activities, and an extensive business support programme, designed to help small and medium size businesses get the most from fibre broadband and be more competitive. In fact, it is expected that Fastershire will help to boost the local economy by £420 million over the next ten years.
Fastershire will revolutionise the way that people of all ages across Herefordshire and Gloucestershire work, learn and play, and will benefit generations to come.
