Theme 4: virtually connected community

We will build upon the Smart Place Pilot - a project currently taking place at the Lansdowne, Bournemouth. This project will provide fast affordable internet access to the regeneration area.

We will deploy a highly innovative 5G network including new fibre-optic cabling and hardware. This will provide faster access to the internet and fast free wi-fi in some parts of Boscombe. It will attract new digital and creative businesses to the area and will be a major attractor for investors and employers.

We will provide free wifi in key parts of Boscombe.
