About the project

Through the Super Connected Cities project Newport City Council is working with the UK Government to improve the availability and use of superfast and ultrafast broadband in Newport.

£4 million is available to support small businesses, social enterprises and charities to connect to the next generation of broadband services, with up to £3,000 available for all small and medium businesses, charities, and social enterprises or residential communities in Newport to contribute to the cost of connecting to a superfast network.

Businesses will be able to choose a broadband supplier from those that provide a service in this area.
