Essex UK Publish BDUK Superfast Broadband Deployment Map

Thursday, September 26th, 2013 (1:51 pm) - Score 2,876

The £25 Million Superfast Essex project, which aims to make BT’s “fibre broadband” (FTTC/P) network available to “around” 87% of premises by the end of summer 2016, has today become the next to publish an indicative map of its Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) rollout.

Admittedly Essex’s BDUK Project has already shown a rough Map of its Intervention Area but the new one is a lot more descriptive and provides a better overall view of the expected rollout, although much like all the rest it still suffers from a lack of detail.

Areas outlined in Dark Orange are set to start benefitting from superfast broadband (25Mbps+) in 2014, while those with a Light Orange will see the service arrive in 2015 and Yellow areas from 2016. Meanwhile areas marked with Light Green can expect standard broadband speeds of between 2Mbps and up to 24Mbps. The existing commercial rollout shows as Purple.

The Essex Chronicle has published a HIGH RES copy of the map, which isn’t yet available via the projects website.

    Where is JNeuhoff, just when we need him?

    Looks like vast areas are left out to me.

    1. Avatar DTMark says:

      I thought that. Is it really the case that 90% of the population of Essex lives outside the green areas? It may be, and it’s verifiable.

    2. Avatar dragoneast says:

      The green areas look to include most of the network of villages that aren’t adjacent or nearly so to built up areas, and of course rural business parks of which there are a number because of agricultural decline. There may be a few of near tiny town size too, especially in the north/north-east. I suspect that pending further work, this initial map is based on the exchanges already enabled (extending their reach) or which can easily be enabled, and that the issue with truly rural exchanges (most of the remainder) is getting the backhaul, so they already suffer with ADSL. But much of rural Essex is “blessed” with some Fixed Wireless (if that’s the term).

  3. Is ISP Review collecting these maps in one place? If not, it would be nice if they did as it would make an excellent central repository readers could refer to.

    Just a thought.

      The maps change too often for that to be feasible.

  4. Avatar dragoneast says:

    Interestingly perhaps the “left out” areas (of low population) in the north-west, north, south-west and east (Dengie Peninsula) have, I believe, existing Fixed Wireless services (capable of superfast if measured at 25Mbps or faster) already supported by local Councils (including ECC) – and, of course, sparse telephone exchanges. So may be they’re not as stupid as they might appear. But, of course, they will not be available to every premises (so, of course, with FTTC/P).

    It’s also helpful to see an urban areas notation to show what the commercial roll-out has achieved, which is a good correlation – with extensions into adjacent areas too; but I can see few market towns are “left out”, and the “suburb” provision can be patchy.
