Next 8 Warwickshire UK Areas for BT Fibre Broadband Named

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014 (2:00 pm) - Score 2,066

The £15.47m state aid supported CSW Broadband scheme has today announced the next batch of areas that will be upgraded with access to BT’s “fibre broadband” (FTTC/P) network in Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire (England).

Overall 91% of local homes and businesses are expected to gain access to superfast broadband (24Mbps+) by Spring 2016, which rises to 93% if you include sub-24Mbps capable lines on the new network. The CSW Broadband partnership itself is designed to benefit around 40,000 local premises and 15,000 have already been completed.

So far BTOpenreach has laid 95km of new fibre optic cable and installed around 77 Street Cabinets as part of the project, with the total number of cabinets set to top 170 by the end of 2014. A new and much more detailed Coverage Map has also been released to reflect the latest update.

Alan Cockburn, Deputy Leader of Warwickshire County Council, said:

The CSW Broadband project is really producing results now. The new map is much easier to follow and the green areas clearly show which areas have been upgraded already, whilst the other colours show which are coming on-stream over the next few months.

The feedback from residents and businesses is very positive, and it’s good to note that the programme is currently two months ahead of schedule, with at least one cabinet from phase three having already gone live.”
