Your broadband speed?
The majority of premises are able to connect to superfast broadband, thanks to the Digital Rutland project.
This means most of the area covered by Digital Rutland has access to high-speed fibre broadband.
Residents now have the choice to stay as they are (with their current broadband provider) or sign up for quicker speeds as part of a fibre package.
