What's happening next  

The Broadband East Riding programme is working to increase superfast broadband coverage across our region. East Riding of Yorkshire Council are in the process of planning Phase 3 of the Broadband East Riding rollout, for which contract award is currently expected in late 2019. This procurement is funded by efficiency savings from Phase 1 and grant funding from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD), with the possibility of further increasing Phase 3 rollout by early utilization of programme take up funding. Phase 3 delivery timescales will be established during the contract award process at which point any additional coverage will be shown on our interactive map.

Phases 1-2  

Phase 1 Complete

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.

Phase 1 Complete

Phase 2 In Progress

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.

Better Broadband Scheme 

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.
