Dorset LEP awarded a grant to the Superfast Dorset programme that aims to deliver the most appropriate superfast broadband solution for communities in Dorset, maximising benefits in a cost effective manner across the business and domestic community. Investment in superfast broadband, funded by the public sector, can only take place in areas where the private sector will not deliver and where there is no existing superfast broadband provision. Within this project, priority has been given to the Dorset LEP’s key strategic sites of Dorset Enterprise Zone, Bournemouth Airport and the Western Growth area.
