Connected Counties

Bucks and Herts have teamed up to increase fibre broadband coverage in the two counties.

We are working with BT to achieve county-wide fibre coverage of at least 90 per cent by the end of March 2016.

We are also looking to extend fibre broadband even further, with coverage to reach 95% in Herts by September 2017 and 98% by June 2018, and further plans for Bucks to be announced early next year.

Basic Broadband Satellite Scheme

This scheme is intended to deliver the Government’s commitment to ensure that all homes and businesses have access to download broadband speeds of at least 2Mbps (megabits per second) by December 2015. Residents and businesses which have speeds below 2Mbps will be able to apply for support for a satellite broadband connection.

We are currently finalising details of this scheme and more information will be made available soon.


The UK government and local authorities are investing over £1.7 billion to improve superfast broadband.
