Progress on Broadband?

Home » News » Progress on Broadband?

Barry Lynch, who publishes the community website for our near-neighbours in the village of Dinton, has been a keen advocate for improved broadband services in rural Buckinghamshire locations. He has recently provided the following update:

Bucks County Council & BT have announced their first rollout plan for rural broadband and the good news is that the local exchange area is in the first rollout plan for superfast broadband, scheduled for 2014. (From earlier discussions they advised verbally that this should be in the first half of 2014).

Attached is the published map showing our geographical area highlighted in "blue" for 2014.

Relevant officials are being quite cautious with their qualifications of this announcement and say that it is not a guarantee that everybody in the area will get superfast (meaning 24mbps) but I believe that most local exchange subscribers will get it unless they are in a particularly remote spot or a location that would involve unusually high connection cost.

The size of the speed improvement will also depend on individual distances between your property and the nearest cabinet. Even if you are not especially close to a cabinet it is likely that you will still see a massive improvement over the current snail paced connections we suffer!

You can see the full announcement here

A postcode checker is promised once the detailed survey work has been completed to check your individual property information on the upgrade.
