The Department does not distinguish between homes and businesses. According to Thinkbroadband currently 92.6% of premises in Cumbria have access to superfast speeds (http://labs.thinkbroadband.com/local/cumbria,E10000006). This is up from 0.6% coverage in 2010. The local project ‘Connecting Cumbria’ holds data at a constituency level.
