Workmen bring up pavement to lay fibre optic cables.

Full Fibre Gigabit project started across Mid Sussex

Work has begun across Mid Sussex to deliver full fibre broadband across the region.

The project will mean that businesses and residents across Mid Sussex have access to full fibre gigabit connectivity services with access to a wide range of service providers.

The benefits to having full fibre broadband are numerous, including increased speed of connection and less interference for the connection, meaning the signal can be carried greater lengths than traditional copper wiring.

Councillor Jonathan Ash-Edwards, Leader of MSDC said:

“The start of these works is fantastic news, not only for Mid Sussex District Council, but for our communities right across the District. The Full Fibre network has always been a long-term objective for this Council and I am delighted to see that it is starting to be delivered on the ground.”

The Government has had ambitions for the whole country to have access to superfast broadband, and although this can be achieved via copper wires, it is far more future-proof to use fibre cables as they enable much higher speeds today and also in the future.
