Shropshire Council is one of the most sparsely populated local authorities in England. Furthermore, the Council’s homes and businesses are distributed throughout the whole landscape unlike other counties where there are concentrations of premises in and around towns and villages.
These characteristics make broadband infrastructure technically more challenging to deploy in Shropshire and commercially unattractive to infrastructure providers to invest in.
ThinkBroadband includes superfast broadband statistics from ‘fixed’ and ‘fixed wireless’ broadband providers which includes Airband and SWS Broadband. The coverage of superfast broadband in the Shropshire Council area is now 93%.
