Hampshire UK Reveal Spring 2014 BDUK and BT FTTC Broadband Rollout

The Hampshire Superfast Broadband Programme in England has named the next batch (Phase 2) of 21 local communities that can expect to benefit from the councils state aid supported roll-out of BT’s superfast broadband (FTTC/P) services. A reasonably useful deployment map is also available.

At present the joint deployment, which is also supported by funding from the Government’s Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) programme, aims to make “superfast” broadband speeds of 25Mbps+ available to “at least” 90% of local premises by the end of 2015 and possibly 95% by 2017 with an imminent extension.

It’s anticipated that, by the end of this month, the project will have helped to extend the reach of BT’s “fibre broadband” network to 9,000+ local premises in Hampshire, which otherwise would not have had it. The second phase will target a further 8,500 premises in areas of the New Forest and Test Valley between April and the end of June 2014.

Overall another 56 of BT’s roadside street cabinets are set to be upgraded during the three months to June 2014 and it’s understood that the council, working with their neighbours in the county of Wiltshire, have also managed to bring forward delivery of superfast services for the villages of Woodgreen and Braemore in the New Forest by 12 months.

On top of that Hampshire’s scheme is also one of the few to publish a reasonably detailed deployment map for the various phases of their project (phase 2 map), which does at least allow you to zoom in. As usual some of the areas above include infill (expansion of coverage in an area where FTTC is already present).
