Connecting Cambridgeshire signed a contract with BT in March 2013 that means businesses and communities across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough will have some of the best fibre broadband coverage in the country by the end of 2015.
Overall 98% of homes and businesses across the county can expect to have access to fibre-based broadband by the end of the contract. Our targets are for more than 90% of homes and businesses to be able to get broadband speeds of 24 Mbps and higher, with a minimum of 2 Mbps to very nearly 100% of premises.
We are now working with BT Openreach on planning and detailed surveys for the roll-out, which will require a substantial re-design of the network. The roll-out has to be carefully planned in phases to make the best use of public money and we will publicise this when we can. To find out more, visit our FAQs which are regularly updated.
Nearly 25,000 homes and businesses have supported the Connecting Cambridgeshire campaign, which is the largest of its kind in the country. Active campaigning has now closed, but you can still register your details with us to keep up to date with the programme using the button below.
