Better Broadband for Oxfordshire UK Project Adds New Coverage Map

The state aid supported Better Broadband for Oxfordshire (BBO) partnership, which has worked with Openreach (BT) and Building Digital UK to extend the reach of FTTC/P based “superfast broadband” (24Mbps+) networks to pass 97% of local premises, has just launched a new coverage map tool.

As usual the map shares the latest information, which the project says has been “collated from a number of sources available to the County Council to provide an indicative view of the current and future broadband provision across the county.” On top of that it also adds new information, such as an estimate of the existing speeds available to premises and when “fibre broadband” may be coming to your area.

Additionally, the new map can also show areas where BBO’s market research has suggested fibre based broadband is already available or will be commercially in the next two years (these commercial coverage plans relate to a number of different ISPs). It also seems to include deployments related to voucher schemes. Check it out. We noted that it was quite slow to load on the first try but after that it was fine.

    Nice, UPRN level mapping is the business, I wish it was used more especially by couriers etc.

    It’d be great to see UPRN tagging linked to Speedtest results instead of Postcodes, possibly very embarrassing for some commercial and Gov departments mind you.
    I’m sure some would have Personal information concerns over that level of detail so easily available.

    Very nice, a great deal better than its predecessor. Alas some inaccuracies when it comes to properties that can get superfast.

    Can it not tell you the cabinet number and estimated distance from the cabinet? Can we order FTTP – dp location and number? Why the pretty graphics without the substance?

      Because it shows the availability from a number of sources (as quoted in the article), who may use HFC, RFOG or even FWA. Same goes for your second comment.

    It might be better if these projects provided an estimate of monies available and owed to complete the task in hand. Why only 97%?
