Middlesbrough Council is committed to improving access to faster broadband for its businesses and residents. We've worked closely with our Tees Valley neighbours and Durham County Council to utilise funding from Broadband Delivery UK (part of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport), to improve superfast broadband coverage and ensure that at least 95% of Middlesbrough's premises have access to superfast broadband.
To find out if your area can currently access superfast broadband, or is scheduled for improvement, please use the BT Openreach postcode checker.
We're continuing to work closely with Tees Valley Combined Authority to improve access to superfast broadband for both residents and businesses. We're currently undertaking a feasibility study with independent telecom consultants Farrpoint, to assess Middlesbrough's current infrastructure capabilities and network requirements, with a view to achieving gigabit status and accessing the government’s Local Full Fibre Network Challenge Fund.
