Town to have fast broadband link installed in internet boost

Premises in Bognor Regis will be among those in UK to benefit from the latest expansion of full fibre broadband.

 

The town is among the 36 new locations revealed by CityFibre to be included in its £4billion investment programme.

 

Each of the areas will gain from a future-proof network that will support the digital needs of homes, businesses, next generation mobile networks and public services for generations.

 

The news follows Arun District Council’s decision to roll put full fibre connections to an extra 100 public sites in Bognor Regis and Littlehampton.

 

Cllr Matt Stanley, Arun’s cabinet member for technical services, said: “The ultrafast connections can offer broadband speeds up to 25 times faster than the current average broadband speed in West Sussex.”

 

CityFibre chief executive Greg Mesch said: “Full fibre will play a critical role in levelling-up the UK and so today we are accelerating our plans, bringing full fibre to more towns and cities, even faster.”

 

It hopes to start building the network in the locations by the end of this year.
