The £18.8m Superfast Leicestershire project in central England has announced the next batch of 38 Phase Two communities that can expect to benefit from the state aid supported roll-out of BT’s “fibre broadband” (FTTC/P) network, which is anticipated to reach 96% of local homes and businesses by March 2016.

So far the project has already helped more than 10,000 extra premises (local homes and businesses) to be put within reach of the operators FTTC/P network and the eventual goal is to push this coverage out to help 62,000 (i.e. this reflects areas that wouldn’t ordinarily have expected to benefit as part of the separate commercial deployments from BT or Virgin Media).

Apparently premises in the Phase 2 areas (listed below) can expected to go live between Winter 2014 and Winter 2015.
