Broadband update

Following the Parish Council meeting last week, Councillor Tydeman has shared some interesting news from Paul Bimson, Regional Partnership Director, BT East Midlands:

“Following the initial planning process needed to determine the most viable solution for the village to enable premises to receive superfast speeds via fibre broadband, the selected technology now being planned for deployment is Fibre to the Premises (FTTP).  FTTP is capable of Ultrafast speeds (up to 330Mbps currently but the technology is capable of going much faster.)  Deploying FTTP is complex.  Openreach are working to have all of the necessary engineering work completed and fibre cables installed and operational during Q3 of this year.  To provision FTTP to the village this will also require a key upgrade of the technology located in the serving exchange, hence the extended timescale.”

I understand that this news is unrelated to the Community Fibre Partnership Scheme which I wrote about recently, promoted by a different BT Excecutive, Glenn Fendall.
