Nottinghamshire UK Reveals Phase 1 BDUK Broadband Rollout Areas

Monday, Mar 31st, 2014 (10:46 am) - Score 1,152

The £20 million Better Broadband for Nottinghamshire project in England has released a provisional list of the first areas to benefit from BT’s roll-out of “fibre broadband” (FTTC) services, which aims to reach 95% of local homes and businesses by the end of March 2016.

The BBfN contract, which is part of the Government’s national Broadband Delivery UK scheme, was awarded to BT in August 2013 (here) and should help 52,000 extra premises gain access to the new network.

According to BBfN, phase one of the deployments will involve 24 telephone exchanges areas and run from April to July 2014.

Nottinghamshire – Provisional Phase 1 (Exchange Areas)

April 2014 – Arnold, Misterton

May 2014 – Bilsthorpe, Farnsfield, Trentside, Collingham, Sutton-on-Trent, Newark, Southwell, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Sutton-in-Ashfield

June 2014 – Mansfield, Woodborough, Bingham, Burton Joyce, Cotgrave, Radcliffe-on-Trent, Ruddington, Saundby

July 2014 – East Leake, Lowdham, Blyth, Sandiacre, Worksop

The usual caveats apply here, not least with the fact that BT’s up to 80Mbps capable FTTC technology will not reach its coverage target immediately and BTOpenreach often returns to related areas later in order to expand their reach. Similarly some areas might already have FTTC and in those locations Openreach will concentrate on expanding the existing coverage (infill).
