Surrey has become the best connected county in Britain following the completion of the main part of a high-speed broadband project.
The county council and BT have announced that fibre broadband coverage has been extended to more than 82,000 businesses and homes not included in commercial roll outs.
Digital Economy Minister Ed Vaizey said: “The Government’s nationwide roll out of superfast broadband is already transforming lives across the UK and this is particularly the case in Surrey, Great Britain’s best connected county.
“We’re now focusing on taking coverage even further, ensuring even more of Surrey’s homes and businesses will be enjoying access to superfast speeds.”
Surrey County Council Deputy Leader Peter Martin said: “This roll out has been delivered at an amazing rate of nearly 200 homes and businesses per working day, transforming lives across the county and making Surrey the best connected county in Britain.
