The state aid supported Superfast North Yorkshire project in England, which is working with BT to make “fibre broadband” (FTTC/P) services available to 90% of local premises by the end of October 2014, has formally approved another £10m to boost the network’s coverage up to their target of 100% by the end of 2017.

After a lot of media and political pressure the £51m Connecting Cumbria project in England has published a higher resolution copy of their “Final Coverage” map for the local Broadband Delivery UK and BT supported roll-out of superfast fibre broadband services. Now if only there were some roads and other details (postcode data?) or maybe we’re just being picky.

The Hampshire Superfast Broadband Programme in England has named the next batch (Phase 2) of 21 local communities that can expect to benefit from the councils state aid supported roll-out of BT’s superfast broadband (FTTC/P) services. A reasonably useful deployment map is also available.

Fibre optic broadband ISP Gigaclear has announced that firms on the Kingston Business Park (Kingston Bagpuize) in Oxfordshire now have the ability to order an up to 10,000Mbps (Megabits per second) capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based Internet service, which is a lot better than BT’s old up to 8Mbps ADSL connectivity.

The £20.1 million West Sussex Better Connected project has finally announced the first 7 communities that will receive an upgrade to “better, faster broadband services” using the latest fibre optic based FTTC/P technologies from BT. But there’s confusion over whether the coverage target is 98% or 90% and a conflict with wireless ISP Kijoma.

The state aid supported Superfast Lancashire project in England has confirmed the names of a further 11 communities that will soon gain more access to BT’s superfast broadband (FTTC/P) network by the end of June 2014 (Q2 – 2014 deployment period).

Cable operator Virgin Media has told ISPreview.co.uk that they’re keeping a close eye upon the state aid supported BT and Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) roll-out of superfast broadband (FTTC/P) services, which focuses upon areas that have been left neglected by private sector investment, to ensure that no overbuilding takes place.

The £35.44 million e-Sussex project has today announced the next batch of Phase 3 locations in East Sussex (England), which will benefit from superfast broadband (25Mbps+) speeds under the joint Broadband Delivery UK programme with BT.

The £56.6 million Fastershire project (best name ever), which aims to make BT’s “fibre broadband” (FTTC/P) network available to around 90% of homes and businesses in Herefordshire and Gloucestershire by the end of 2016 (148,000 premises), has confirmed the next batch of locations for its roll-out.

6th March, 2014 (13 Comments)

The £51m Connecting Cumbria project and other councils claim to have published a “Final Coverage” map for their Broadband Delivery UK and BT supported rollout of superfast fibre broadband services, which appears to be one of the first to be “agreed” by the DCMS and Public Accounts Committee (PAC). Sadly they’re still set at a low-resolution and thus of only limited use.

5th March, 2014 (4 Comments)

The state aid supported £28m Superfast Staffordshire project in the West Midlands (England) has published a list of the first communities to benefit from their roll-out of BT’s superfast broadband (FTTC/P) technology, which will be extended to cover 95% of the local population by spring 2016.

5th March, 2014 (15 Comments)

Sometimes rulings by the Advertising Standards Authority can seem a little overzealous and their latest decision to stop rural fibre optic broadband ISP Gigaclear from advertising absolute Internet speeds (e.g. 1000Mbps without the notorious “up to” prefix) on their website might just stray into that territory. Hyperoptic, B4RN and Gigler take note.

4th March, 2014 (2 Comments)

Fibre optic broadband ISP Gigaclear has successfully picked up the RCBF supported contract to build, implement and operate a 1000Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based ultrafast broadband network in the Parish of Northmoor (West Oxfordshire, England).

Scientists writing for the Royal Society of Edinburgh (Digital-Scotland Working Group) have warned that the Scottish Government’s Step Change programme, which apparently now aims to make BT’s “superfast broadband” network available to “around” 95% of local premises by the end of 2017-18, will actually only achieve less than 80%.

1st March, 2014 (5 Comments)

The Digital Dales (Fibre GarDen) project, which hopes to build a community managed fibre optic (FTTP) broadband network to connect rural homes in Garsdale and Dentdale (Cumbria, England), has suffered a blow after Dent Parish Council issued a positioning statement that appeared to attack the schemes funding and feasibility.

28th February, 2014 (1 Comment)

The £18.06m Connected Counties scheme has revealed which areas and street cabinets will be the first to receive an upgrade to BT’s “fibre broadband” (FTTC/P) network, which aims to cover 90% of local premises in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire (England) by the end of March 2016.

28th February, 2014 (8 Comments)

The communications regulator has today proposed to grant Code Powers to Hyperoptic, which would make it simpler for them (e.g. easier approval for street works) to roll-out their 1Gbps capable fibre optic broadband (FTTB) network into more cities around the United Kingdom.
