Burwell

Find out here how you can get fibre broadband.

The broadband speed you will get depends on a number of factors including the length of your line from the telephone exchange or green roadside cabinet, the line quality, and the equipment and internal wiring within your premises.

Additional cabinets serving premises in Burwell have recently gone live with fibre broadband. Residents connected to these cabinets should now be able to upgrade to a fibre broadband service with their chosen Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Other premises are covered by existing commercial roll-out plans so you can either already get superfast broadband or there are already plans to roll it out commercially.

To check if you can already receive superfast broadband or are included in plans for commercial roll-out, please visit the main infrastructure providers’ websites:

BT Openreach

Virginmedia

You can also check with your current broadband provider or an independent broadband checker.

Connecting Cambridgeshire is working to ensure that everyone in the Connecting Cambridgeshire programme gets as fast a speed as possible given their geographical location. Some premises may be particularly hard to reach meaning that a connection to the fibre network may not be possible. Where appropriate, alternative technology may be used to provide broadband connectivity (minimum 2Mbps). These technologies are likely to be delivered later in the roll-out.

Your area does have a broadband champion, who is supporting the project by raising awareness and encouraging take-up of superfast broadband once it is available.
