Digital connectivity has never been so important for businesses, communities, and public services in Cambridgeshire & Peterborough. 

Reliance on connectivity accelerated during the Covid pandemic, highlighting the need for businesses to make the most of digital technology and wider digital inclusion so that more people can access healthcare, education and jobs.

The Combined Authority is responding to these challenges by setting out a new Digital Connectivity Infrastructure Strategy for the next four years to ensure Cambridgeshire & Peterborough has the leading-edge digital connectivity infrastructure needed for local businesses to thrive and that no communities are left behind.

The new infrastructure strategy for 2021-2025, to be presented to the Housing and Communities Committee for approval on 3 November, focusses on delivering next generation broadband connectivity and mobile coverage, using ‘Smart’ technologies to improve the environment, and extending free public access Wifi, while supporting digital inclusion.
