11,000 connected with Hampshire Superfast Broadband Programme

Remote parts of Hampshire are about to get connected to high-speed broadband, as phase three of Hampshire’s Superfast Broadband Programme seeks to plug-in 11,000 homes and businesses between July and December this year.

Hampshire’s programme aims to fill in the gaps left by the commercial sector. View a detailed map of the areas to be covered in this phase.

The ambitious scheme aims to provide at least 95 per cent of all premises with access to superfast broadband by the end of 2017.

Leader of Hampshire County Council, Councillor Roy Perry, said:“The roll-out of superfast broadband is fully on-track and I expect at least 95 per cent of homes and businesses in Hampshire to be able to access these services by 2017. Coupled with the recent announcement that Hampshire secured £1.2m to explore innovative solutions to take superfast broadband to some of the more remote and hardest to reach places in the county, we hope to see these services being available to even more of Hampshire’s residents.

“Superfast broadband is increasingly important if local households and businesses are to make the most of the huge range of opportunities offered by the internet, whether they are seeking to start a new business, find new customers, undertake on-line training or simply wish to browse for entertainment or leisure purposes.”
