Northamptonshire who signed their contract with BT back in 2013 now has the first cabinets going live as part of the multi-million pound project. The first fourteen cabinets are now live and ready to take orders, the cabinets are located in Towcester (10 cabs) and Weedon and Paulerspury (4 cabs) and cover some 4,175 premises, with more cabinets going live in the coming weeks.
The Northamptonshire website does not follow the normal county website template and if it continues to update looks to actually be useful. The planning process and what is involved in the surveying is explained in detail.
Northampton is different to many parts of the UK as the stated aim is to have 100% coverage of superfast broadband by 2017, where as the national target was 90% by 2015 and 95% for 2017.
