West Sussex is upgrading its broadband links through the Better Connected programme in partnership with BT and the Government

Better Connected is an exciting project to bring better, faster broadband to West Sussex.

Funded by West Sussex County Council, the government and BT the project aims to make it possible for more than 90% of the county to connect to better, faster broadband services by spring 2016. By this date all premises will be able to access downloads speeds of at least 2Mbps.

The benefits will be great. Improved broadband speeds can transform how we work, live and communicate. This exciting technology can improve our quality of life, and help to grow our economy by enabling new businesses to start up, and existing ones to prosper.

Providing access to better, faster broadband does not mean that Better Connected will physically connect users to a broadband line. Customers will contract with broadband providers to buy services, in the usual way.


To find out abut the latest availability of broadband in you area, visit the Better Connected website.
