Digital Rutland is a Rutland County Council and BT partnership which is funded by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (dcms) as part of the Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) Project to bring superfast fibre broadband speeds of up to 80Mbps to businesses and homes across Rutland.
Openreach is currently in the process of upgrading the infrastructure to bring fibre optics from the local exchanges to new cabinets in each village. The plan is to provide access to superfast broadband speeds for the majority of the 17,000 properties in Rutland by the end of 2013.
If you would like to keep up to date with developments, Digital Rutland will be publishing regular newsletters about the progress of the Rutland broadband upgrade project.
