Warwickshire, Solihull and Coventry Reveal Next Fibre Broadband Rollouts

The CSW Broadband project, which recently signed an extended deal to bring BT’s “superfast broadband” (24Mbps+) network to “nearly” 94% of Warwickshire, Solihull and Coventry by summer 2019, has revealed the next batch of areas that can expect to receive faster connectivity in the very near future.

So far almost 30,000 premises in the region have already been upgraded to BT’s faster “fibre broadband” (FTTC/P) network by the project (engineers have also installed more than 140 new road-side street cabinets) and the next batch of locations will bring that service to another 7,800, with the expansion work due to commence from mid-April 2015 and run to the end of August 2015.

CSW Broadband – New Areas from April 2015

Barton-on-the-Heath
Earlswood
Elmdon
Hampton-in-Arden
Meriden
Newton
Biggin
Tanworth-in-Arden
Wolvey

Expansion of Existing Coverage (Infill)

Atherstone
Kenilworth
Rugby
Sheldon
Shirley
Tile Hill
Wellesbourne

It’s worth pointing out that Openreach doesn’t always achieve 100% coverage in new areas and often comes back during later phases to expand coverage through infill. Otherwise Phase 1 of the CSW project aims to upgrade around 40,000 premises (i.e. 91% superfast broadband coverage by Spring 2016), while the recently agreed Phase 2 will expand that to another 17,000+ by summer 2019.

    They need to improve on the areas they’ve already done! We live just outside Atherstone (but come under Nuneaton even though our council is North Warks) & while we have fibre it’s anything but.

    I think the maximum people in the area can get is about 30mbps down! We barely get 21 on a good day and that seems to be getting lower and lower.. (impacted line..)

    Shame there are no other options, Even Virgin Media refuse to cable the area ‘due to costs’ even though they’ve cabled a nearby area and just stopped when it came to us.

  2. CSW should be re-named Solihill and Warwickshire, as Coventry are not actually doing anything. They may be the first name in the title, but not a single area of Coventry is benefiting from CSW activity. Coventry failed to put any funding into Phase 1 and it going the same way in Phase 2. Time for soe honest, lets get rid of CSW and have an honest SW initiative.
