St Helena Connected Group seeking your views

With the fibre optic cable becoming a closer reality, we want to find out what realising the Digital Strategy would mean for you.

The St Helena Connected Group is chaired by Councillor Lawson Henry and includes representatives from St Helena Government, Sure South Atlantic Ltd, Bank of St Helena, Enterprise St Helena and the Chamber of Commerce. The Group was set up in 2017 and has been working to ensure that the European Development Fund milestones are being achieved to draw down EU funding tranches.

The milestone in 2021 is to achieve ‘improved connectivity of households and businesses [which] will have a substantial positive impact on all socio-economic conditions on the Island’ and in order to achieve this milestone we would like to know what  ‘a positive socio-economic impact’ means to you.

You can feed into the St Helena Connected Group by joining the workshop from 5pm-6pm at the Museum in Jamestown on Wednesday, 3 July 2019, or you can feed in your opinions by filling out our short online questionnaire via:

Your views will help the Group consolidate a vision of what a digitally connected St Helena will look like.
