BT and BDUK Help First Norfolk UK Areas Go Live with Superfast Broadband

Monday, Jul 8th, 2013 (7:49 am) - Score 1,029

The £41 million state aid supported scheme to roll-out BT’s superfast broadband (FTTC/P) ISP network to more than 80% of Norfolk’s (England) premises by the end of 2015 has confirmed that the first communities are now live and more will soon follow.

The Better Broadband for Norfolk project, which was signed last September 2012 (here) and is funded by £11m from BT, £15m from the government’s Broadband Deliver UK (BDUK) office and another £15m from local councils, has now successfully upgraded parts of Croxton and Thetford.

Around 3,500 local homes and businesses are due to gain access to the new service over the next three months (phase 1 rollout details), which will deliver broadband download speeds of greater than 24Mbps (Megabits per second) to the target and ensure that everybody can access speeds of at least 2Mbps.

As ever the service will take time to deploy and just because the first communities have been upgraded doesn’t mean to say that everybody in the target area will immediately be able to order.
