investment in a new fast rural broadband infrastructure. The project is
managed by GFirst (Gloucestershire’s Local Enterprise Partnership),
Gloucestershire County Council, Herefordshire Council and Broadband
A Gloucestershire-wide survey of households and businesses is underway
to show there is demand for fast broadband in rural communities. And so

parishes across the county have stepped up to become
‘broadband champions’ for their communities.
Please complete a questionnaire for your
