Broadband Delivery UK Rollout Map for Devon and Somerset Goes Live

Sunday, July 28th, 2013 (2:30 pm) - Score 2,400

The joint BT and state aid supported £94m Connecting Devon and Somerset (CDS) project has just launched an official coverage map, which is designed to give locals a rough idea of when each specific area will be upgraded to fibre optic based superfast broadband (25Mbps+).

The programme itself aims to roll-out 80Mbps capable FTTC and 330Mbps FTTP technology to “around” 90% of local homes and businesses by the end of 2016 (original news) and recently revealed the first communities that can expect to benefit (here), which included 15,000 homes and businesses by “early” 2014.

Unfortunately those hoping to see a detailed picture of the deployment programme will probably find the map to be somewhat limited. In addition the map doesn’t yet contain all of the rollout data and a FAQ Page notes that it “will be updated when more information becomes available“. So far most of the data being shown only reflects the previous June 2013 announcement (linked above).

    Think that map would just be a sea of blue(exchange under evaluation) if it was coloured in normally.

    1. TheFacts says:

      Apart from the green, orange, pink and grey.

  2. Bob2002 says:

    @TheFacts – Are you stating the map is not predominantly blue? So far only seven CDS communities have been announced. Other FTTC/P exchanges highlighted have nothing to do with CDS.

  3. Slow Somerset says:

    At least it is a start a small bit of Information, lets just hope the keep it up and keep to the dates.

  4. Mark says:

    £94 Million to connect 15,000 homes, what a waste of money

    1. Somerset says:

      £94M to connect 360,000 premises.

    2. Mark says:

      Where does it say 360,000?

  5. Slow Somerset says:

    My Exchange is on there for June next year wonder if they will keep to that date, we shall see.

    1. FibreFred says:

      At last!!! 🙂

  6. Slow Somerset says:

    Yes FibreFred at last lets hope we see some real action now across the whole county.
