Third party analysis by Think Broadband puts current superfast coverage in the constituency at 89.3%. Coverage is likely to increase further both as a result of the current Go eSussex project (http://www.goesussex.co.uk/) and a potential future project, for which an Invitation to Tender is expected to be issued shortly.
