Have you seen the broadband plan
for CBC, MK and Beford? Unfortunately they'veremoved the maps that show the predictions of which areas will have coverage of NGA.
From that, it looks like there are 75,000 properties in the "intervention area", out of a total of 287,000. The project aims at bringing NGA to 51,000 of those properties by 2015, and all properties by 2020.
In CB alone, the figures are: 29,000 properties in the intervention area, out of 70,000. The target is still 90% of the area, so 7,000 will be left out of NGA. That means there are 22,000 to be included in the plans.
Note too that the "lost" 10% aren't all automatically relegated to 2Mbps. The announcement for suffolk
has only 2% in the 2Mbps - 5Mbps region.
Is NGA going to get out as far as exchanges of your size? I'm not sure - and you might be borderline. Ofcom's analysis labels 12% of the population within "market 1" exchanges, which means BT will have to start targetting the market 1 areas to be able to reach the 90% BDUK target.
Alternatively, BT is running a pilot to turn Deddington into a "fibre-only" exchange - which has 1200 lines. That might be one to watch.
You might get more of a feel as the BDUK winning bid is announced. Or you might want to check what size the other Bedfordshire exchanges are.
