BUSINESSES in Suffolk are being urged to show their support for the “Better Broadband for Suffolk” campaign.
So far, 500 businesses across the county have signed up to the campaign but with tens of thousands of business in the area, the county council is keen to hear from more of them.
The campaign has already secured the necessary public funding for the project, including up to £10 million from Suffolk County Council and £11 million from the Government.
But it needs to demonstrate demand to ministers and potential suppliers by getting company owners to sign up and complete its broadband survey.
This will help to show the level of demand and likely take up of superfast broadband services in Suffolk.
Mark Bee, Suffolk County Council’s leader, said: “We have had an excellent response to our business survey so far but we want to double it at the very least.
“I’d encourage all Suffolk businesses, large or small, to spend the five minutes it takes to show their support for better broadband for Suffolk.”
