Outskirts of Dorking first to benefit from Surrey BDUK project

Another BDUK project is starting to deliver with what looks like the first street cabinet deployed by the project, the joint project between Surrey County Council and BT has started with extra coverage for Pixham Village in Dorking, serving an extra 100 homes and businesses.

Dorking exchange was already offering FTTC services from some cabinets, so enabling the cabinets on the fringes that previously failed the accountants spreadsheet calculations for the commercial roll-out is an obvious choise to start roll-out.

For those in Surrey who have not heard of Pixham Village, it is the area around Dorking station in the north east corner of the town with a clear view to Box Hill.


Looks like a pattern here... Big PR splash for the first cabinet in each county.

But it tells us that a cabinet with 100 lines is seen as viable with BDUK funding.

There's gotta be a big splash about that, even if it is only in Wales!
