Babergh is already benefitting from a programme to increase internet speeds but some areas will miss out on super-fast connections.

Around 25,000 homes and businesses across Suffolk can now connect to faster broadband and it is hoped the county will be 90 per cent covered by fibre optic broadband by 2015.

Parts of Sudbury and some rural areas are, however, subject to a commitment of receiving a minimum of just 2Mbps by the end of 2015, compared to super-fast broadband speeds of 24Mbps.

“Giving 25,000 properties access to faster broadband in just eight months is a significant achievement,” said Suffolk County Council’s leader Mark Bee.
