ISP Aylesbury Vale Broadband Reveals Next Villages for 300Mbps FTTH

Monday, June 6th, 2016 (5:33 pm) - Score 952

The Aylesbury Vale Broadband network, which has recently rolled out a 300Mbps Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) service to part of both North Marston and nearby Granborough in rural Buckinghamshire (England), has today named the next two villages to benefit from their deployment.

At present the pilot network is supported by £200k of public investment from the Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC), which is likely to be boosted by another injection of £500k (latest AVB uptake and financial data) in the very near future; albeit much to the annoyance of some local fixed wireless ISPs.

Apparently the next two villages to be reached will be Oving and Swanbourne, both of which are home to around 400-500 people each and are said to have already demonstrated that there is “sufficient demand” for the service to be deployed.

AVB Statement

The route to Swanbourne from North Marston via private land has already been agreed and work is scheduled to start the week commencing 13th June 2016. Discussions with land owners between North Marston and Oving are currently underway and this work is expected to start in July.

AVB is also in discussion with other parish councils in regards to delivering ultra-fast fibre service to their areas and we expect to announce more villages in the near future. AVB has set the ambitious target of having our network live in 10 villages in Aylesbury Vale by the end of 2016.

Customers of the new network can expect to pay from £30 per month for an unlimited usage 30Mbps service (symmetrical), which rises to £38 if you want a 100Mbps connection or £135 for the top 300Mbps. The one-off connection fee for the service is £150, although this only works if you’re happy to “self-install” the cable to your property and it will cost a little more if you wish to hire a professional to do the job.

    It’s weird that they seem to be doing villages that are closer to Milton Keynes than Aylesbury

    1. Steve Jones says:

      Why? The Vale of Aylesbury is a large geographic area and Milton Keynes marks one limit. It also goes out to Thame, Bicester, Leighton Buzzard the Chiltern’s. Despite the name “vale”, it’s not actually a valley, but a rolling area covering close to half the area of Buckinghamshore.

    2. sentup.custard says:

      Yes, and not only a large geographical area, the same applies to the District Council area. Even Newton Longville, which is near as dammit Bletchley, comes under Aylesbury Vale District Council.

    3. Steve Jones says:

      You’ll have the villagers chasing you with pitchforks suggesting that Newton Longville is as near as dammit part of Bletchley. They are doing their best to avoid be absorbed into the place as Bletchley expands ever more to the south-west. As it is, the (effectively large housing estate) of Newton Leys has adopted part of their name.

      (Although Newton is effectively just “new town” and leys are basically lakes, even if those in question are just flooded clay-pits).

  2. broadbandbob says:

    I don’t think the residents of North Marston will be pleased to hear that AVB is aiming its efforts at new communities. Most of them still haven’t been connected to the AVB network, and it’s hard to see how AVB can hope to achieve all its amazing targets.

    Also, not sure the residents of Newton Longville would appreciate the idea they still use pitchforks. Its Audi country these days.

  3. New_Londoner says:

    The continuing lack of both state aid approval and any form of consultation process is puzzling. It will be interesting to see whether the European Commission responds to the earlier complaints.

  4. fastman says:

    this is still public money building infrastructure with no state aid approval

    1. fastman says:

      and no formal procurement

  5. broadbandbob says:

    and now planning on overbuilding

  6. broadbandbob says:

    Just been told that the Ombudsman and the EC have confirmed their going to investigate the Aylesbury Vale Broadband state aid complaints. If the complaints are proved right, they’ll have to give the money back.
