Superfast Leicestershire is a project to bring fibre broadband to as many premises in Leicestershire as possible.

Superfast Leicestershire is a partnership between the county council, BT, the district and borough councils, economic bodies, and voluntary and charity organisations who want to achieve this.

Leicestershire County Council is investing £5.4m in this project. £1.2m has been allocated by the District, Borough and City Councils, with an additional £7.97m coming from Government and £1.2 million from the European Union. BT is also making an £7m capital investment and is contributing a further £7.6m in operating costs. The Leicester and Leicestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, through the Local Growth Fund, is also contributing £3.1m towards the overall cost of the Superfast Leicestershire deployment.
