Hereford and Gloucestershire became the first counties to launch a joint bid to bring fibre to rural areas. 9 in 10 homes and businesses will have access to fibre. The project will be completed by the end of 2016. The project value is £56.6m, with contributions from BDUK (£18.17m), BT (£20.9m), Herefordshire Council (£10.1m) and Gloucestershire Council (£7.5m).
