Cable broadband ISP Virgin Media has taken the unusual decision to sue Durham County Council (England) in the hope that doing so will enable them to lay new fibre optic cable along grass verges and without having to pay “hefty” fees per metre. The case will test the recently revised Electronic Communications Code (ECC).

Residents of three small rural villages in the borough of Darlington (Durham, England) have been left upset after the local council pulled £50K of public investment to help roll-out faster “fibre broadband” (FTTC/P) services to the area, which is partly due to Openreach trebling their quote for the work.

The £34m Digital Durham project in North East England, which includes Gateshead, the Tees Valley and Sunderland, claims to have completed its original goal of ensuring that 98% of local premises are covered by a “fibre broadband” network (96% able to receive “superfast” speeds of 24Mbps+).

Last year’s effort by the ITS Technology Group to save a struggling fixed wireless broadband network (Digital Teesdale), which was serving fixed wireless broadband to homes across rural parts of the Teesdale valley (east of the Pennines in England), appears to have stumbled after a hike in the spectrum licence made the service economically unviable.

The Digital Durham project in England, which includes Gateshead, Tees Valley, Sunderland and currently aims to make BT’s “fibre broadband” (FTTC/P) network available to 98% of local premises by September 2016 (96% will get “superfast” speeds of 24Mbps+), has signed a second contract that should push the network coverage near to the magic 100% mark.
