Connectivity

All major towns in East Sussex are well connected with broadband.

Easy and fast access to internet services has led to an increase in the number of digital and creative businesses based in the county and to ensure that all companies can benefit from the opportunities that developing communications technology presents, East Sussex County Council is working on a major initiative to provide access to faster and more reliable broadband to the county by 2016.

Whilst most major towns in East Sussex already have access to Superfast broadband, the ‘e-Sussex’ programme is looking to improve connectivity and speeds to those areas that have not previously benefitted from those upgrades. Cloud Services are provided in some areas in the county by independent firms such as CloudConnX and Beaming, which provide superfast business broadband as well as an extensive range of wireless technologies.
