A CONSULTATION on superfast broadband will close at the end of the month.

Residents and businesses are being encouraged to tell Essex County Council whether they can access superfast broadband.

The Superfast Essex public consultation is being run by the Superfast Essex broadband programme until August 31.

It will reassess which areas will not have access to superfast broadband speeds and to identify which areas should be eligible for future investment.

Visit the Superfast Essex website to view the interactive State Aid map and respond to the consultation.

Full details and a link to respond to the Superfast Essex Public Consultation 2017 can be found at www.superfastessex.org/whatshappeningnext.
