What is West Sussex Gigabit?
It’s an exciting time in West Sussex where we want our public services to be better connected with each other and our residents. Our ambition for our county is the highest quality of life in a safe, smart, digital environment.
Our ambition is big and so is our vision for delivering public services. We are delighted to have been chosen by Government to trial a new approach to building full fibre broadband infrastructure.
The County Council and District and Borough Councils are joining together to build ultrafast broadband and connect to each other digitally, and ensure we meet the future need of public services.
‘West Sussex Gigabit’ is seeking a supplier to build full fibre broadband infrastructure that delivers speeds from 1,000 megabytes per second (1 Gigabit) – a 3,000 per cent increase on the current national average speed of 30mbps.
We aim to help grow the fibre infrastructure of the county’s future and ensure that West Sussex is at the forefront of this exciting technology.
