Within this project, priority has been given to the Dorset LEP’s key strategic sites of Dorset Enterprise Zone, Bournemouth Airport and the Western Growth area.

Ultrafast has now delivered 1837 premises to Customer Ready for Service (CRFS) standard.

There is currently Openreach delivery underway at the Aviation Business Park site.
