Leicestershire UK Publishes BDUK Superfast Broadband Rollout Map

Thursday, Sep 26th, 2013 (12:17 pm) - Score 1,391

The Leicestershire County Council (LCC) in England has today become the latest Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) project to publish a typically vague map of the schemes expected “fibre broadband” (FTTC/P) coverage, which aims to reach “around” 95% of the region by March 2016.

As usual the £16.9 million scheme, which was signed last month (here), clearly hasn’t spent much of its budget on the construction of a detailed map. The result is much the same as every other BDUK map, with existing superfast broadband coverage from BT and Virgin Media being shaded in grey (i.e. private investment).

At this point it starts to get a little confusing because the councils own BDUK/BT/EU funded rollout of “fibre broadband” is then marked in both dark green (deployment will begin from summer 2014) and light green (deployment will begin from summer 2015).

After that the yellow-ish shaded areas represent locations where “further investment is planned by the County Council, Government and District Councils for areas due to be addressed by 2018” (that will surely make life difficult for any altnets to secure funding; lack of coverage certainty).
