Superfast Berkshire phase 3

Phase 3 procurement is underway with a time scale deployment of 2017/2018, the third phase will target 97% superfast coverage in all of the Berkshire districts.

Funding is £3.5 million of which:

a) Funding that could not be used under Phase 2 contracts that will be re-applied to Reading and Wokingham respectively:

£382,500 from Reading Borough Council and BDUK
£615,000 from Wokingham Borough Council, Thames Valley Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership and BDUK
b) Funding of around £2.5m (to be confirmed) released from our Phase 1 contract due to underspend on planned delivery and share in revenue from take-up of service on the 120 cabinets deployed. This funding will be applied to all Berkshire districts.

Further details to be published by Superfast Berkshire at the end of July.

Full details in the link below.

Better with the dates and more accurate with the areas to be covered though their does seem to be a bit of overlap.

What was discussed at the Woolhampton meeting?

Unfortunately my daughter snapped her arm in two places an hour before the meeting. She said she didn't want to go smile

Someone in the village is suppose to be sending me a summary via email but I'm yet to receive it.

Just had the Gigaclear presentation for my village- pretty much just a sales pitch only a vague map colored red where they intend to deploy.

Their postcode checker will confirm coverage, only the next areas for deployment will be up.
Deployment is 3 months per area with the core network built within a month, its quite a tight schedule they are running to, in order to meet the contractual deadline.

Any questions do ask.

With people thinking Gigaclear might bid for some CDS areas, there is perhaps some attention on how much coverage they are achieving. Are they actually getting fibre to every house?

Thanks for the info, my dad's up in cold ash and was going to attend that event. He's off the main road and set back a bit so we were not sure if its even an option for him. Did they mention what the criteria is for coverage such as straying off the beaten path?

Schedule for Woolhampton seems to of slipped massively to Jan 17 end date

With West Berks the tender was for just over 11,700 homes, Gigaclear will deploy a fiber pot to each property by the end of the contract.
This will take superfast coverage to over 99% and the council is holding £1.5 million of Gigaclears money until they meet the contractual deadline.
