The roll-out of full fibre infrastructure across Coventry is now complete in many areas. This is bringing speeds of 900mbps to residents across Coventry for the first time. Work started in 2019, was later expanded to the west of the city, and is still ongoing.
This full fibre infrastructure supports the local council’s COVID-19 recovery plan, providing the community with the digital foundation they need to thrive. Research has shown this could bring as much as £300m to the local economy over the next 15 years. This estimate includes increasing the value of local homes, an improved transport system and local businesses innovating thanks to increased digital capability.
Running until at least the end of 2022, these works are bringing 50 additional jobs to the local area to support this digital transformation in Coventry.
