Manchester Digital Strategy promise 1,000 times faster internet



March 11, 2016

Manchester City Council has launched a new initiative to give the city 1,000 times faster internet access and next generation open network broadband.

The Manchester Digital Strategy will create a digital masterplan for Manchester. It will help to steer investment and develop services that will both benefit the local community and support local businesses.

The council will work with local universities, colleges, businesses, industry and community groups, in order to make Manchester a “Next Generation Digital City”.

It hopes to attract investment into super-fast broadband, helping to generate jobs, training opportunities and new services.

The Council’s proposals include establishing the UK’s first ‘fibre to the premises’ (FTTP) open network. This would be complemented by advanced wireless connectivity, which would support job creation, skill development and business growth.

It would also help to enhance public services and facilitate digital inclusion. The network would be implemented in a phased plan.
