More Cash For East Anglian Broadband

After months of campaigning, it has been confirmed millions of pounds is coming to East Anglia to help improve broadband speeds.

Suffolk had missed out on the first round of Government money, but has now been allocated funding.

The £11m investment pledged by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport means Suffolk can move forward with its plans to improve the local network
 
It follows a decision by Suffolk County Council to invest up to £10m in the project.

Councillor Mark Bee, Suffolk County Council's Leader, said:

"I'm ecstatic. From the day I was elected Leader I've wanted this and have worked hard with all our partners to make it happen. Today is an important milestone in our ambition to create for Suffolk a broadband network fit for the twenty first century. We can now crack on with the project and turn our ambition into a reality."

Norfolk was awarded around 15 million in the first round of Government spending, and that money is going to be matched by the County Council.
