Local Full Fibre Networks

The government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) is giving Rutland Local Full Fibre Networks (LFFN) funding to help roll out the next generation of faster, full fibre broadband connections to public buildings like schools and libraries.

Full Fibre

Full fibre broadband is even quicker and more reliable than current superfast internet and capable of satisfying the UK’s growing demand for online services for many years to come.

Benefits

By supporting full fibre connectivity to public buildings, the LFFN Challenge Fund aims to make it easier for broadband companies to provide commercial full fibre packages to homes and businesses, as well as supporting the delivery of future 5G mobile broadband services.

Next steps

Following a successful bid to the LFFN Challenge Fund, we are working with Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) to find a suitable provider to install full fibre connections to selected public buildings throughout the county.

This procurement process is due to get underway by the end of April 2019 to identify a supplier who can begin the rollout of full fibre to the public sector buildings in Rutland by October 2019.

Further information will be shared on this page as the project develops. You can also find out more by emailing: digitalrutland@rutland.gov.uk.
