More superfast broadband on the way for the East Riding of Yorkshire
The drip feed of information from the various BDUK projects continues with the names of the next areas set to benefit from the East Riding of Yorkshire project have been released.
"Aldbrough, Beeford, Bishop Wilton, Bridlington, Burton Agnes, Burton Pidsea, Dalton Holme, Elvington, Flamborough, Holme-on-Spalding-Moor, Hornsea, Keyingham, Kilham, Langtoft, Leconfield, Leven, Market Weighton, Melbourne, Middleton on the Wolds, North Cave, Patrington, Pocklington, Stamford Bridge, Skipsea, Skirlaugh, Spurn Point, Tibthorpe, Watton, Wilberfoss and Withernsea"Communities forming the next 20,000 to benefit from fibre based broadband
The list is useful, but no precise information is available on what cabinets or technology will be used, picking Wilberfoss at random we have been able to spot that cabinet 1 went live at the end of 2013 via the North Yorkshire project, and believe that cabinets P2 and PE2 are set to get FTTC via the East Riding project, plus for some of the Exchange Only lines in Wilberfoss there may be FTTP rolled out.
The East Riding project site does provide some vague maps showing roll-out areas and tempers expectations by talking of the projects goal of bringing 24 Mbps or faster to 42,000 premises, with 2 Mbps or better for the rest. Compared to the headline advertising the public is normally exposed to this a more realistic way of expressing things.
