Digital Derbyshire is a £27.67 million programme to deliver the county's biggest ever broadband transformation.
The council is spearheading Digital Derbyshire and has signed a contract with BT to make fibre broadband available to a further 88,000 premises across the county, bringing access to more than 95 per cent of homes and businesses by 2016. The project builds on BT's existing commercial fibre deployment in the county.
The project aims to ensure that the remaining premises will also see an uplift in speed and deliver a minimum of 2Mbps or more to almost all homes and businesses, fast enough to use online services such as BBC iPlayer.
