Priority 5: Deployment of super-fast broadband connectivity across rural areas to support community, education and business needs as supporting increased access to a range of digital services.

Key activity for this priority has been:

  • Over 4,600 responses were received to the Leicestershire County Council broadband survey, with strong demand identified in a number of rural communities
  • A Communications Strategy for the programme has been developed that will be promoted through the website and partner organisations
  • and websites have successfully transferred to a long-term sustainable delivery model without county council investment
