Surrey Strategic Partnership are about to submit a bid for funding from Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK). BDUK are the Government’s delivery vehicle for helping to roll out Broadband across Britain.
Surrey Strategic Partnership will be matching the funding they receive and their ambition is to provide universal infrastructure to rival the best in Europe by the end of 2013 across the County.
The main objective of the project includes stimulating economic growth and competiveness, ensuring online access for all, enabling better flexible working and ensuring residents and businesses will be able to enjoy the benefits of the revolution in services that will inevitably follow.
Michael said, “ I share the view that access to Broadband is crucial in ensuring that Surrey remains competitive and I have written to Robert Sullivan, Chief Executive of Broadband Delivery UK, to show my support for Surrey Strategic Partnership’s bid to receive grant monies.”
