Ten so-called 'super-connected' cities, selected via a competition last year, will benefit from the extra money over the next three years, ZDNet reports.
The extra funding comes from an unassigned portion of an £830 million pot for bankrolling fibre optic broadband installation across Britain, announced by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport this week.
As part of the initiative, Belfast will receive £13.7 million, Birmingham £10 million, Bristol £11.3 million, Cardiff £11 million, Edinburgh £10.7 million, Leeds and Bradford £14.4 million, London £25 million, Manchester £12 million, and Newcastle £6 million.
> Culture secretary Maria Miller backs superfast broadband roll out
"These ten cities have produced ambitious and comprehensive plans, which will turn them into digital leaders, and give their local economies a real boost," said Culture Secretary Maria Miller.
"The new investment will help put these cities at the centre of the digital stage, competing for jobs and investment with the best in the world."
The scheme is expected to see fibre optic broadband rolled out to around 230,000 homes and 55,000 businesses by 2015.
