If you live in Buckinghamshire or Hertfordshire and are still waiting for superfast broadband or even just better broadband than you have now to arrive then an update on the Connected Counties website may prove useful.
For once rather than try to publish a map that is hard to figure out (and sometimes impossible for those who are colour blind), the Bucks and Herts project is listing the exchange name and the actual cabinet number. If you do not know your cabinet then use the BT Wholesale checker and enter your telephone number or full address, then you will be given your cabinet number along with what BT Wholesale services are available.
Bucks and Herts has three phases underway currently, Phase 1 which covers 70 cabinets spread over thirteen exchanges should complete by September 2014 and Phase 2 which has a rough window of June to December 2014 covers eight exchanges and 59 cabinets. Phase 3 still needs its survey work carrying out, but cabinets on the following exchanges are thought to be involved: Aston Clinton, Aylesbury, Brill, Buckingham, Finmere, Haddenham, High Wycombe, Lane End, Long Crendon, Northwood, Radnage, Steeple Claydon and Winslow.
