The £18.06m Connected Counties scheme has revealed which areas and street cabinets will be the first to receive an upgrade to BT’s “fibre broadband” (FTTC/P) network, which aims to cover 90% of local premises in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire (England) by the end of March 2016.

Apparently BTOpenreach has already started building phase 1 of the project (e.g. Butler’s Cross, Ellesborough, Hertingfordbury and Birch Green) and they’ve even revealed which specific street cabinets in each area will be the first to receive BT’s up to 80Mbps capable FTTC technology between March and September 2014.

Most other Broadband Delivery UK supported schemes have yet to release cabinet specific details.

Phase 1 – Exchange Area (Cabinet Numbers)
Aston Clinton (2, 3, 5, 6)
Aylesbury (9, 33T, 34T, 35T, 41T, 47, 53, 60, 62, 65, 86, 87, 88, 90, 93, 94, 96, 97, 98)
Berkhamsted (5, 28, 29, 33, 35)
Elstree (33, 53)
Hemel Hempstead (7, 17, 22, 58, 60, 76, 95, 97, 106, 111, 123, 127)
Hertford (5, 11, 15, 22, 30, 47, 55, 56)
Kings Langley (1)
Stoke Mandeville (1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8)
Stone (3, 5, 6, 10)
Waddesdon (4, 7)
Ware (12, 15, 32)
Wendover (6, 15)
Whitchurch (3)

On top of that Openreach intends to begin the survey work for phase 2 in April 2014 and we already know which telephone exchange areas that will include: High Wycombe, Holmer Green, Knebworth, Lane End, Naphill, Park St, St Albans, Stevenage and Waddesdon.

Overall some 38,500 homes and businesses are expected to benefit from the new connectivity. Take note that this update was actually published last week but it’s easy to overlook some of these announcements.
