East Sussex UK Name Phase 2 BDUK and BT Fibre Broadband Rollout Areas

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014 (8:15 am) - Score 1,820

The state aid supported £35.44 million e-Sussex project, which will make superfast broadband (25Mbps+) speeds available to 96% of East Sussex premises in England by mid-2016 (note: 99% will be covered by BT’s new FTTC/P network but some won’t be “superfast“), has revealed the next communities to benefit from its upgrade work.

The first customers aren’t even expected to be connected under Phase 1 of the new network development until late Spring or early Summer 2014 (announced last October 2013) and yet the expected reach of Phase 2, following another round of “high level planning“, has already been announced.

East Sussex Phase 2 Coverage

New Areas
Buxted
Chelwood Gate
Chiddingly
Danehill
Framfield
Guestling
Halland
Newick
Ninfield
Nutley

Extended Coverage Areas (Infill Work)
Baldslow
Bexhill
Castleham
Cooden
Hastings
Uckfield

It’s understood that Openreach will begin the Phase 2 engineer surveying work in February 2014 and then the physical roll-out should follow some 6-9 months after that (i.e. around autumn 2014). A useful January 2014 Rollout Table (PDF) can be found at the link that contains a lot more detail.

    Hopefully Connecting Devon & Somerset will announce their Phase 2 rollouts soon as well, no news for a while.

    Oh God!

    I just worked out what this means…

    Every BDUK project is going to send out a press release at the start of every phase, to tell us where they’re going. Then another at the end to tell us where they’ve been. Some more in the middle, to let us know how far they’ve got overall.

    There’s something like 45 projects, each perhaps 10 phases. I can see 1,000 of these stories coming over the next 2 – 2.5 years, and each one will be full of comments about how poor value it is for the taxpayers.

    Arggggh!

    Yes you are probably right on that one and why not since Public money is being used and after all you don’t have to read it if you don’t want too.
