Superfast Berkshire


[link to this post]
 
Berkshire's superfast website has finallly gone live

http://www.superfastberkshire.org.uk/index.aspx?arti...

Broadband providers are scheduled to roll out superfast broadband to 80% of premises in Berkshire before the end of 2015, but this will leave over 37,000 premises without this valuable utility.

iI wonder if they can reach the 80% target.

The BDUK pot is 1.43 million which most will go to West Berks as its the most rural area of the county.

Looking at West Berks has 19 exchanges of which 3 have FTTC or be finished by December.

Newbury
Thatcham
Hungerford.

These are the next largest exchanges which i would assume be targeted for BT's rollout,

Burghfield Common 2983 TT live/ BT 03/12
Pangbourne 2422 TT live
Hermitage 1759 TT 12/11
Lambourn 1744 03/12
Woolhampton 1739 BT 02/12 TT 03/12
Theale 1625
Kintbury 1601
Mortimer 1590 BT 31/01/2012

All except Kintbury/Theale (VM) have LLU or dates for TT or BT.

I can see Burghfield and Mortimer being done at the same time as both villages are next to each other.

No more dates for exchanges for FTTC announced yet, hopefully in the winter update by BT.

What are peoples thoughts?

It would be nice to see Burchetts Green get something ...

Currently the really lucky ones get 1Mb and most of the rest 500k ...

And it is only just outside Maidenhead.

Oh how clever of you ... The next thing you will be saying is that trees are loosing their leaves.


Does it matter whether is Market 1,2,3 or whatever? No, and the Superfast Berkshire project will probably deliver nothing.

and all Berks to the East?

Why your bias towards West Berks when that site covers the whole of Berks?

Note also that the website refers to "Superfast Broadband" as "24Mbit/sec or faster"

They may only be referring to ADSL2+...

Reading South, Caversham, Earley and Woodley have had FTTC for around a year, Reading Central has been live for a while, and Tilehurst has just gone over. Virgin available in all those areas also, so it's pretty much sorted.

There seems to have been a couple of glaring omissions on enabled cabs. 40 in Hunters Chase in Caversham. Serves an area of high density housing so would have been ideal.
66 off Reading Central, just by the Cunning Man on the Burghfield Rd. This should have been done just as a 'sorry' to the poor folk out in the boonies, who get virtually diddly-squat, sync wise.
