£11 million towards Norfolk broadband
Norfolk County Council’s ambition to give everyone in Norfolk access to superfast broadband has taken another huge step forward after securing an extra £11 million to invest in the scheme.
The Better Broadband for Norfolk (BBfN) programme is currently set to deliver 95% coverage across the county by the end of March 2020, but the council is not content to stop there. Some of the remaining 'not-spots' are the most time-consuming and costly to reach, but this funding will go a long way to plugging those gaps.
BBfN rollout started in July 2013, when 42% of Norfolk properties had access to superfast broadband. This has already increased to 92% of homes and businesses across
Norfolk being able to access download speeds of 24Mbps+ per second. That’s more than enough to binge watch a Netflix boxset or download your favourite album in under a minute.

If you’re planning to move to a new-build house, have you checked with the developer if the property has access to superfast broadband? Not all developers offer broadband as standard, so it’s always best to check before you buy.
