A bid for more than £10m to improve broadband services in East Sussex has been submitted by the county council.

East Sussex County Council's plan, which aims to improve services in rural areas, has been sent to the government.

The county council will be investing £15m in the plan which will also help those living in areas where broadband is not commercially viable.

Peter Jones, leader of the council, said he wanted everyone in East Sussex to have access to reliable broadband.

He said: "Making this technology available throughout East Sussex is absolutely vital for all our residents and small businesses."
