Hampshire UK Council Publishes Full BDUK Broadband Rollout Map

Thursday, Oct 10th, 2013 (10:29 am) - Score 1,089

The Hampshire County Council (HCC) have this week published a full map of their entire £13.8 million project with BT to roll-out superfast broadband (FTTC/P) services to “at least” 90% of local premises by the end of 2015. Sadly new ambiguity has also been added for rural areas.

The first map of the Phase 1 deployment (here) was only published a couple of weeks ago but the new one covers the overall project and even highlights, in YELLOW, where the “second wave” of the project might attempt to go in order to achieve the UK Government’s target to cover 95% by 2017. Sadly the map itself doesn’t shrink down to street level.

But smaller ISPs and altnets will quickly notice that the yellow area covers pretty much the entire last 10% of the county, which would of course make it very difficult for them to seek funding through the Rural Community Broadband Fund (RCBF) (i.e. state aid doesn’t allow networks to overbuild each other). But then they already know that (here).

The first premises will be able to sign up to superfast services in January 2014.
