Plymouth has world-class connectivity, a network that accelerates growth and enables business investment, and one of the highest rates of superfast broadband penetration in the UK. It is also one of the best places to start a business in the country, according to Startup Geek, outperforming cities many times its size.

The city benefits from excellent transport links, with an international airport under an hour away and 24 daily train services to London, including three high-speed ones.
