Importance to our residents and businesses
The council has a vital role to play in encouraging economic development in the city. Better digital connectivity is a key part of this. It’s important as our local economy specialises in the creative, digital and IT sectors.
We’re keen to develop the most up-to-date and effective mobile and wireless technology for work premises in the city.
Many of our residents also expect higher internet speeds and reliability in their homes and on their phones.
