Phase 1 of the Broadband East Riding programme is now complete. 42,971 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.
The Government has now extended it's BDUK programme to make superfast broadband available to 95% of the country by 2017. The Council has signed a contract with British Telecommunications PLC to make superfast broadband available to over 4,500 properties by December 2017.
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.
