The Superfast Essex Programme

By using a community hub, like a village hall, community centre, or parish hall, the Superfast Essex Programme aims to improve online engagement and provide additional value community based venues.

CIF Grant

Funded by Essex County Council, the CIF covers the setup costs of a WiFi service as offered by the two operators under this scheme (only). Covering costs up to £400. This grant aims to provide WiFi for the community that you live in: a noble goal if ever we saw one.
