The CSW Website
has been getting regular newsletter updates, and is one of the more informative & communicative projects, so always seems to manage to add information to the general understanding of the BDUK process.
Their latest newsletter show two interesting things...
1. That they've been allocated an extra £1.4m, which would allow an extra 6,500 homes to be connected to fibre-based cabinets, which is around an extra 1.5% coverage.
They say that this means 51k premises get included in the rollout, and 41k will get SFBB speeds, but I can't get those figures to tie in with the numbers announced in June.
This isn't the first BDUK project that has gained extra funds.
2. That they are ignoring RCBF funding - mostly down to timescales, and risk to the existing project, plus the effect on the new tranche of funding (for 2017).
Their older newsletters refer to a network re-arrangement process known as CuRE, where they seem to be including plans to re-align the copper network between cabinet and premises. This doesn't seem to be the work on EO lines, and is more to do with connections at the DP, so is a new part of the process to me.
