Aylesbury Vale Broadband expanding to Granborough

  • Wednesday, February 17, 2016 10:39 AM

Aylesbury Vale Broadband has had live properties in North Marston for a little while now and has announced expansion with a 3km dig to Granborough. The FTTH project is a joint venture with Aylesbury Vale District council and offers up to 300 Mbps broadband packages, with an entry level 30 Mbps service at £30 per month, a symmetric 100 Mbps service for £38 per month and the full 300 Mbps at £135 per month.

Speed test result for FTTH service in North Marston

The above speed test result is an example from one of the live premises in the area and looks like the up to 100 Mbps service and is more impressive when you learn that it was carried out on an iPad (meaning a Wi-Fi connection).

We have added the postcodes for the main area of Granborough to our broadband availability checker and as more people take-up the service we will hopefully discover which IP blocks Aylesbury Vale are using to improve the provider plotting on

I read their funding is a legit commercial arrangement so not state aid

These are very impressive broadband speeds... Great to have such services delivered in areas so far 'off grid'!

The problem with this project is that it can only be judged a success when the whole of the Aylesbury Vale area can get superfast, or even on the standards set ultrafast broadband.
Residents who are currently only getting slow ADSL speeds must wonder what their local council is playing at.

it has been funded by section 106 money from homes into local authority w- no formal procurement- so that is subject to state aid -- as that is why there is a state aid challenge -- none of tis is private money so cant have been done commercially -- If it had have been done commercially there would have been no challenge

AVB are calling their current rollout a pilot.
If they are just using section 106 money and some private money at the moment they are certainly going to need lots more capital from elsewhere to make their objective a reality.
