Digital

All of Cambridgeshire's major towns and science and business parks receive excellent broadband connectivity. Many parts of the county are rural and some areas do not receive the consistency of service that the majority of the population receives. The County Council - along with external partners - is working hard to ensure that all residents receive the same high level of connectivity.
