Weald & Downland Living Museum, one of the renowned tourist attractions in West Sussex, now has access to future-ready, gigabit-capable broadband speeds.
The museum, which showcases life from bygone and ancient times, has recently updated its digital infrastructure to allow visitors to enjoy faster and more reliable broadband service.
The tourist attraction was awarded £25,000 by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport to help it recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ilona Harris, the Museum’s Marketing Director, said: “The Weald & Downland Living Museum is delighted to have received this Government funding from DCMS, and West Sussex County Council's support was instrumental in bringing the constituent parts of the project together and ensuring the project’s delivery.
“Having access to faster broadband means our visitor experience in our admission, shop and café is faster and more seamless; it also has great potential for us going forward and for our local community.”
Paul Marshall, Leader of West Sussex County Council, said: “I’m delighted our officers have been able to help one of West Sussex’s visitor attraction ‘gems’ get future-ready, gigabit-capable broadband speeds.”
