For everyone who would like to see faster broadband in Pett! People in Rother are being asked to back the new ‘Go e-sussex’ campaign and register their support for faster, more reliable broadband. East Sussex County Council has received significant funding to help get much faster broadband in homes and businesses across the county. By 2015, they aim to upgrade 90% of the county to superfast broadband (24 Mbps and over) whilst ensuring everyone in East Sussex can access the minimum level of service of 2 Mpbs. East Sussex County Council ran a consultation last year to ask residents and businesses about their current state of broadband. The results of this survey helped win £10.64m in funding from Government and have persuaded the telecoms market that East Sussex is worth a second look. Registering your interest does not mean you will have to subscribe to the service when it’s launched, but saying “Yes to superfast broadband” will directly help everyone in East Sussex receive faster, more reliable broadband. Visit ESCC’s new dedicated website to complete your online registration form at or phone them on 01273 335991.
