Wiltshire County Council is set to invest up to £16 million bringing faster broadband speeds to households and businesses across the county.
The local authority is aiming to provide super-fast broadband to 85 per cent of premises by 2015, and will support the rollout plan with public funding, reports the BBC.
An application for further financial support has also been submitted to central government as Wiltshire council plots a rural broadband revolution.
Commenting on the plans, a spokesperson for the council said high-speed broadband was "increasingly important" for businesses and residents.
In order to successfully target particular communities, local residents are being asked to complete an online survey about their current broadband requirements.
The findings will help to guide the county council as it decides how best to rollout fibre broadband services across the Wiltshire countryside.
