Welcome to Connecting Shropshire
Connecting Shropshire is a government supported programme bringing faster broadband to the parts of the Shropshire Council area where it isn’t economically viable for commercial companies to provide it.

The Connecting Shropshire roll-out is going well, with around 58,000 homes and businesses already able to access faster fibre broadband from the network that we’ve installed. But it might surprise you to hear that only around 1/3 of those premises that are able to connect to the new fibre optic network have chosen to do so.
This may be because people assume that, once fibre broadband has been ‘switched on’ in their area, they’ll automatically get faster speeds without having to do anything. But that’s not the case. To find out how to ‘make the switch’, please click here.
If your property gets a download speed of 2mbps or less, you can apply to the Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme for support towards the cost of the installation of a fixed wireless/satellite broadband connection.
