Connecting Shropshire broadband infrastructure deployment
Using approved public funding, Connecting Shropshire has commissioned Airband and Openreach to install infrastructure capable of providing Shropshire premises with access to superfast broadband*.
Once faster broadband infrastructure becomes available, you’ll need to upgrade your connection. Broadband speeds won’t increase automatically.
Airband have a contract to cover 14,000 premises by 2020. To find out if you’re in Airband’s current or planned coverage area, please call 01952 980123 or enter your postcode on their website: https://home.airband.co.uk/coverage/
