BT Agree £14m Superfast Broadband Rollout in East Riding of Yorkshire

Friday, Sep 13th, 2013 (1:07 pm) - Score 1,418

The East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) in England has today agreed to a new state aid supported £14 million rollout of superfast broadband (25Mbps+) services to a further 42,734 local rural homes and businesses by December 2015.

The Broadband East Riding Project is to be funded by £4 million from BT and around £5.5 million from the Government’s Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) office, while the rest will come from the ERYC and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Bill Murphy, BTs MD of for Next Generation Access, said:

The East Riding of Yorkshire is a largely rural county and we know that small businesses form a key part of the local economy in rural areas.

Faster broadband breaks down the barriers to doing business in the digital world like online trading, which helps to empower small businesses to find new markets, sell new products, try new models and compete on an equal footing with larger businesses.

This project is vital to the future economic strength of the whole of East Riding. It will go beyond BT’s and other suppliers’ commercial roll-outs of fibre broadband and take faster broadband to areas which are technically and economically more challenging.”

BTOpenreach will now begin its engineering survey and the first communities are then expected to be connected during summer 2014. Most of the deployment will make use of BT’s up to 80Mbps capable FTTC technology and some 330Mbps FTTP.
