Answered By: 
The Mayor

Through my Connectivity Advisory Group I convene a number of London boroughs (including Southwark Council) and a range of digital connectivity providers (including BT) to discuss potential solutions across London, which may include the use of innovative technologies that could be delivered by a number of different providers.

In addition, a total of 313 businesses in Southwark have successfully had vouchers approved for superfast connections through the connection voucher scheme.
