Faster broadband plan sees West Sussex get £6.26m funding

Plans to bring faster broadband to 90% of West Sussex have been approved by the government.

West Sussex County Council has been allocated £6.26m by the government.

It is now looking for a supplier to install the infrastructure, with an estimated completion of April 2015.

Residents have been called on toregister their support for the planon the council's website. This will allow the supplier to see the demand and help the authority negotiate the best deal.

Deputy council leader Lionel Barnard said: "We know more than 2,000 people have already registered, but there are areas where responses haven't been so strong.

"These are some of the places which would benefit massively from access to improved broadband being installed."
