Superfast broadband could be winging its way to most of Central Bedfordshire and you can help by completing a survey to show just how much demand there is for the service.
Superfast broadband would mean people could download music, games and films more quickly, and websites would download faster too. And for businesses the service would boost opportunities to access global marketplaces and allow more companies to offer flexible working to employees. Please read the Joint Local Broadband Plan (PDF 991KB) (the JLBP) for more information.
Please take part in the survey online.
