The £16.26m Superfast Northamptonshire project in England, which aims to deliver “full countywide coverage by 2017 at next generation access speeds (30 mbps and above)“, has today begun its local roll-out of BT’s related “fibre broadband” (FTTC/P) network.

Overall some 53,000 local homes and businesses are expected to benefit once the project has completed, although today’s announcement only reveals the initial roll-out areas for more than 4,175 premises.

The first areas to go live today include 10 street cabinets in Towcester and a further 4 in Weedon and Paulerspury.

First Wave Areas
Daventry
Weedon
Braunston
Long Buckby
Towcester
Silverstone
Pattishall
Paulsbury
Blisworth

Second Wave
Northampton
Kingsthorpe
Brixworth
Byfield
Clopton
Oundle
Thrapston
Broughton
Kislingbury
Yardley Hastings
Bozeat
Cogenhoe

As usual not all parts of these communities will be covered at the outset and Openreach usually returns to the same areas later in order to expand their reach. Never the less the project currently claims to be running 2 months ahead of schedule.

The project also hopes to ensure that “almost 3,000 Northamptonshire business premises” will have access to “fibre infrastructure” by September 2015.
