On December 21st 2012, Suffolk County Council signed a £40m contract with BT for superfast broadband. Around 9 out of 10 (i.e. 90% of) Suffolk properties will be able to access fibre-based broadband by the end of 2015. Over 80% of properties will have access to superfast coverage with speeds of 24 Mbps or more.
Only 2% of the hardest-to-reach premises are expected to have speeds of less than 5 Mbps.
The total contract value is £40m, with contribution from BT (£16m) and BDUK (£11.68m).
