Broadband Roll-out

We’re getting there…

The Connecting Cambridgeshire superfast broadband programme is rolling out fibre broadband to as many homes and businesses as possible that could not get it otherwise.

Combined with commercial provision, the programme will bring superfast broadband access to 95% of premises across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough by the end of 2017, and is aiming to reach 99% coverage by the end of 2020.

The programme is working with BT and Openreach using a range of solutions including Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) and Fibre to the Premise (FTTP) technology.

The fibre broadband roll-out is being covered in phases as follows:

  • Phase 1: 2013 – 2015 Completed
  • Phase 2: 2016 – 2017 Superfast extension
  • Phase 3: 2017 – 2019 Planning and surveys underway
  • Phase 4 : 2018 to 2020 In planning

Faster Internet connections are having a huge impact on communities, allowing people to work flexibly, be entertained, keep in touch, and access public services wherever they are.
