About this project

We are working in partnership with Superfast Essex to provide ultrafast full fibre broadband to over 13,400 homes and businesses. Our initial joint project focused on connecting over 3,300 properties across the Epping Forest District and we are now building our network to over 8,300 more, in rural areas of Uttlesford District, Braintree District and Colchester Borough. We also have plans to extend our network in the Epping Forest District and this work will enable a further 1,800 co-funded properties. Our work in the region also includes an additional 24,000 properties which we are funding commercially.
