Been annoyed that the ~500 Exchange Only (EO) households on my estate in Caterham are not part of the Superfast Surrey project and, according to BT Openreach and Virgin, are also not part of their cabinet plans either.
So I did some digging. E&OE.
I suspect that Superfast Surrey and BT have agreed that the vast majority of Surrey's EO lines come under the BT commercial rollout based on VDSL2+ Vectoring tech being approved and rolled out in 2014. If I'm right this is bad news for those with EO lines longer than 1.5km (me included).
I also think Superfast Surrey's 99.7% target is so overly optimistic that it cannot be believed. If true it means just ~1,600 Surrey premises won't have access to Superfast Broadband by the end of 2014.
So basically I'm not getting unlimited Superfast Broadband, be it 15Mbps, 24Mbps or more, any time soon.
Based on figures I found via Google:
475,670 dwellings in Surrey (http://www.surreyi.gov.uk/get/ShowResourceFile.aspx?ResourceID=1124)
61,900 businesses (http://www.surreycc.gov.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0019/527050/Economic-overview-slides.Feb-2013.pdf)
84,000 of the above to be reached by the £35,200,000 Superfast Surrey Project (http://www.superfastsurrey.org.uk/faqs/)
