Full Fibre Connectivity
The network has been funded by the Department for Digital Culture Media and Sport, through the National Productivity Infrastructure Fund and The Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership through the Getting Building Fund.
Mid Sussex District Council has worked closely with Suppliers to ensure that works were delivered with minimal disruption but maximising the network coverage across Mid Sussex.
Moving forward the Council will be working alongside its Network Operator – Cooperative Network Infrastructure to facilitate enquiries with Telecoms Service providers to ensure everyone has the opportunity to be connected to fast and reliable gigabit technology.
