The Government has allocated £7.46 million to the Leicestershire broadband project. 31,388 homes and businesses had been given access superfast broadband by 31 March 2015 as a result of the project.

Superfast broadband will become available to parts of the Seagrave area from late 2016 onwards. The Thrussington area is at planning and survey stage. Superfast broadband is expected in parts of the area by the end of December 2015.
