Homes and businesses across West Sussex are benefiting from improved access to the latest broadband infrastructure.

Local publication the Worthing Herald reports the ongoing Better Connected programme that is being operated by West Sussex County Council (WSCC), BT and central government has so far helped to connect more than 38,000 properties to superfast broadband services across the county.

The project aims to to deliver 90 per cent coverage for local communities by the end of 2016 and while this is an ambitious target, it is one that the scheme currently remains on track to achieve.

David Barling, WSCC cabinet member for residents’ services, commented: "The county council recognises the need that business has for fast and reliable broadband to compete effectively and we are keen to attract and retain our business by giving them the best advantage."
