Digital connectivity

1. Overview

Access to reliable, high speed internet connections is essential in the way we lead our lives and operate our businesses. Stockport is extremely well connected through digital infrastructure with one of the best network coverages in the UK.

Recent investment in broadband infrastructure through the Get Digital Faster programme has ensured that over 90% of premises in the borough have access to superfast broadband delivered through fibre enabled street cabinets, offering download speeds of over 23Mbps.

Wireless broadband infrastructure provides an alternative option to fibre and is also extensively available across the borough.

Continued improvements to digital connectivity are essential. This is why we're working closely with neighbouring authorities in Greater Manchester. The aim is to build world class full fibre gigabit connectivity with the highest possible speeds and ensure the city region is at the forefront of the next generation 5G mobile roll out.
