Next wave of better broadband for South Gloucestershire and Wiltshire announced
The BDUK projects are progressing and while the figure of 100,000 premises passed was quietly made in August 2013, as counties announce more roll-out progress things should ramp up to hopefully the same sort of speeds as the commercial roll-outs.
South Gloucestershire and Wiltshire that are working together on a joint project with the eventual goal of 94% of premises in South Gloucestershire and 91% in Wiltshire getting super fast broadband and the remaining getting 2 Mbps or faster, have announced the next areas to benefit from the £35.6 million of spending.
New areas of Wiltshire to have access to fibre based broadband by summer 2014: Kington Langley, Castle Combe, Broad Town, Broad Hinton and Whiteparish. Salisbury will see some infill work to cover the areas not previously considered commercially viable.
Next nine areas of South Gloucestershire to see benefits from BDUK project: Bradley Stoke, Barrs Court, Lower Almondsbury, Olveston, Rudgeway, Thornbury town centre, Tockington, Tormarton and Warmley with the first premises being able to order by summer 2014.
