Phase 1 of the Broadband East Riding programme is now complete. Over 42,000 homes and businesses now have access to superfast broadband speeds of over 24Mbps. The programme also delivered a reliable basic broadband service of at least 2Mbps to the remaining properties within the programme’s intervention area.
Following a State Aid Public Consultation exercise in August 2016, provisional approval has been given to BT by the Council and UK government to reinvest early gain-share funding and Phase 1 underspend back into Phase 2, extending coverage by over 2,000 superfast premises and increasing its total delivery target to over 6,500 homes and businesses by the end of 2018. The planning and survey work for this extended programme is ongoing and as such is subject to change, but provisional plans can be viewed via the link below, and via our Interactive map.
There are many broadband service providers which operate in the East Riding. The ones that the Council is aware of are listed below.

The Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme has been developed by the UK government to provide access to a subsidised broadband installation to homes and businesses that are unable to access a broadband service with a download speed of at least 2Mb per second and who will not benefit from the superfast broadband roll out.
If you currently experience poor broadband speeds, or are unable to obtain an affordable broadband service at all, the scheme will provide you with access to a basic broadband service that will offer speeds of at least 2Mb per second.
