Essex County Council – Project Gigabit
31st October 2022
Building Digital UK (BDUK) Public Review
BDUK is currently running a public review in Essex to identify which areas are eligible for future, public-funded rollout of gigabit-capable broadband.
Digital Essex is asking all residents and businesses in Essex to respond to the review with their current broadband availability status. In order to do this, you’ll need to:
• Use this interactive map to identify your current eligibility status for Project Gigabit.
o If the map shows your address with a grey box, this means that gigabit connectivity already exists, or there are plans to get gigabit connectivity to you within three years. You do not need to contact BDUK unless you disagree with this.
o If the map shows your address with a yellow box, this means that BDUK is not aware of any plans to get gigabit connectivity to you within three years. If you agree with this, or you are aware of any plans, please let BDUK know.
• Follow the instructions available here (‘How to respond to the review’ section). Send this information in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
• Responses are required before 5pm on the 3rd November 2022.
• If you have any issues seeing the status for your address, you can contact the Digital Essex team via our online contact form.
