Superfast broadband in Dorset

Superfast Dorset - What it is about and how Bournemouth will benefit.

Superfast Dorset is a partnership between BT, central Government and all Dorset District and Borough Councils, including Bournemouth. The programme is working to roll out faster, more reliable broadband connections across the county by 2018.

Superfast Dorset builds on BT’s commercial roll-out of fibre broadband in Dorset. Although the majority of properties in Bournemouth can already access fibre broadband, Superfast Dorset is increasing coverage in the borough even further by filling in the gaps left behind by the commercial roll out.

Further information is available on Dorset County Council’s website.
