Rapid progress in technology means that a ubiquitous full fibre footprint is needed to underpin the local economy, support public services and prepare for the next generation of mobile services. To achieve this, the programme will:
- Target a threefold expansion of full fibre networks across the county bringing ‘fibre to the premise’ (FTTP) services to many more homes and businesses.
- Provide fibre upgrades to around 30 public buildings, including schools, libraries, fire stations and GP surgeries, across nine locations in Cambridgeshire.
- Create a 40Km stretch of fibre ducting from St Ives to Linton – linking fibre in new and existing routes and making it available to commercial operators to bring Gigabit networks to nearby homes and businesses.
We’re in the process of updating this website to reflect the wider digital connectivity programme and will be adding more details as the work develops.
