Four more councils broadband plans approved
Thursday 26 January 2012 19:21:24 by Andrew Ferguson

The BDUK process is a long one, with central approval of any plans being required before a local authority and four areas have received that approval, allowing the area to undertake the business of taking tenders from commercial providers.

  • Kent and Medway Councils, BDUK allocation £9,870,000
  • Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, BDUK allocation £8,210,000
  • Lincolnshire, BDUK allocation £14,310,000
  • Hampshire, City of Portsmouth, City of Southampton, BDUK allocation £8,420,000

Does this mean Telford & Wrekin will bring more FTTC in due course to Cuckoo Oak, Hollinswood and Oakengates as my neighbours such as Dawley, Donnington, Stirchley and Wellington already got FTTC for this year.

If BT gets the contract then yes most likely.

Thanks Andrew, all I need to do is just sit back and wait until BT put the dates on. Hopefully not too long before 2015.

You alledgedly have 120/12 from Virgin Media, unsure what FTTC will bring you.

Telford and Wrekin have pulled out after deciding that they could not justify the £700,000 funding that was needed from them. Shropshire is now going ahead alone.

Looks like I'm in with a chance of getting at least 2MBs broadband, which is better than the 800KBs-1.7MBs I'm getting at present. I'm in Hampshire.

Telford & Wrekin withdrew their bid so we will get f**k all!!!!!
BT need to sort this out as they are the retards that put us on the Hollinswood exchange when we live in Donnington.
