Bid for faster broadband in Oxford
9:50am Saturday 5th May 2012 in Oxford
Oxford is one of 27 cities throughout the UK in the running to become ‘super-connected’, Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt has announced.
The cities are able to bid for a share of a £50m pot to help them roll out ultrafast broadband, in a bid to drive growth and attract new investment.
To be able to bid for the fund cities must have a Royal Charter and more than 45,000 homes and businesses, or more than 35,000 homes and businesses in Northern Ireland.
