Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport, has announced that 14 cities across the UK are being targeted for the ultra-fast broadband project.
The four capitals – London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast – will automatically qualify, with the rest being chosen through a competition.
This is currently open to cities that have more than 150,000 dwellings.
But the MP for Brighton Pavilion said that the importance of Brighton and Hove’s flourishing digital sector to the local economy makes it an ideal candidate for the scheme – and that its 125,000 dwellings put it very close to the threshold.
