Northumberland UK Finally Publishes a Detailed BDUK Fibre Broadband Map

Friday, December 5th, 2014 (8:33 am) - Score 924

It’s been a long time coming but Rothbury councillor Steven Bridgett has today informed us that the Northumberland County Council in North East England has finally uploaded a much more detailed coverage map of their local £19m iNorthumberland project, which also depicts their tentative plans for ultrafast 330Mbps Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) coverage.

ISPreview.co.uk first highlighted the plans to publish a detailed map in September 2014 (here), although since then several months have passed without any sign of the new information. Happily the new map is much more detailed and shows, among other things, the planned deployments (i.e. those “under consideration“) for hybrid-fibre FTTC on Exchange Only Lines (EOL) and even the large swathe of locations that might soon benefit from true fibre optic (FTTP) connectivity.

Take note that the map is quite high quality, but it’s not yet zoom capable (i.e. not high res enough) or interactive. The good news is that the council says, “We expect to be able to publish an interactive map shortly which will show commercial deployment by private companies (e.g. BT) and deployment as a result of investments made by [the BDUK based project].

The Northumberland project currently aims to ensure that BT’s “fibre broadband“(FTTC/P) network can reach 95% of local premises by early 2016, although only 91% will get “superfast” speeds of 24Mbps+. More coverage is currently being debated for the post-2016 period.

NOTE: The map image accompanying this article represents a closer view of Rothbury from the same source information.

    Its an impressive map. Especially for seeing the scope of the FTTP areas, and the property-density from the blue dots.

    I make it roughly 50 different FTTP areas, and 45 different EO areas.

      “I make it roughly 50 different FTTP areas, and 45 different EO areas.”

      You must be looking at an imaginary map

    And this isn’t the very latest information either, a more up to date one will be available shortly that also includes the additional £4 million Superfast Extension Program which I am told will specifically target areas that have shown the greatest interest.
