Sturminster Newton and its nearby North Dorset Business Park (NDBP) at Rolls Mill are connected to the main fibre network. All premises in the town have access to SuperFast Broadband, which offers speeds of at least 24mbps. Most have significantly more than this. Premises can connect directly to the Fibre network at 330mbps on the NDBP and other locations, and Wessex Internet is able to provide access to speeds significantly higher than this where needed.
The mobile network coverage for 4G is being expanded. The main operators offer extensive 4G coverage of the area at very high data rates. This includes much of the town’s rural surroundings. They are also improving their coverage of blackspot in the nearby countryside. Speeds similar to Superfast can be achieved on this network.
