Today, the Connecting Cambridgeshire team announced the areas currently being considered to receive fibre broadband in the very first phases of superfast broadband roll-out. Spaldwick is included alongside over 50 rural parishes and urban areas. A high-level map has been released, and this is shown below with a red ‘X’ marking the position of Spaldwick.
The first phase of the roll-out is scheduled to deliver connectivity from December 2013 through to June 2014, with the first cabinets going ‘live with fibre’ by the end of 2013.
Over the coming months, BT Openreach (and its contractors’) engineers and surveyors will be carrying out detailed planning and surveys in the green areas. If surveys reveal unexpected issues, it may affect when an area is connected. We expect to bring you further information in September. In due course, we will providing comprehensive guides on superfast broadband services and pricing.
You can track progress of the superfast broadband roll-out by visiting our dedicated Cambridgeshire superfast broadband page. Some areas in the county with a high number of registrations have been disappointed to discover that they are not being considered for Phase 1 since a number of additional criteria have been used to select areas for the initial roll-out.
