About Better Broadband for Norfolk
Better Broadband for Norfolk (BBfN) is transforming broadband speeds across Norfolk by extending access to a faster, fibre broadband network to homes and businesses across the county.
Since it launched at the end of 2012, nearly £70 million has been invested in the programme, which is primarily focused on improving broadband access in the more rural parts of the county. BBfN is due to make high-speed broadband available to more than 95 per cent of Norfolk’s premises by spring 2020.
The project is already making a difference to people living, working and running businesses in Norfolk. By the end of 2015, more than 80% of the county’s premises could access superfast broadband (24 Megabits per second and above), nearly double the number who could do so before the project got underway (42%).
BBfN is a partnership between Norfolk County Council and BT, with funding also provided by Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) on behalf of central Government, the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership and five of Norfolk’s district councils – Breckland, Broadland, King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, North Norfolk and South Norfolk.
