A fast and affordable broadband connection is a crucial part of modern business and the City Property Advisory Team (CPAT) is working to help businesses and residents get what they need to thrive in the 21st century.

Whilst the City has 10 fibre optic networks, many of these provide high end business grade services which are not affordable for small businesses and residents.

CPAT is working with broadband operators to provide faster and more affordable broadband services for all. Find out more about where superfast broadband is currently available in the Square Mile, and where it will soon be delivered.

Some parts of streets may not be covered due to the arrangement of BT's network.
