Better Broadband for Nottinghamshire is a multi-million pound partnership between the County Council and a range of funding partners including BT, Central Government and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), which is set to transform broadband speeds across Nottinghamshire.
As a result of the programme, 95% of Nottinghamshire’s premises are expected to be able to access a fibre network, capable of delivering superfast broadband, by March 2016. It is also intended that all Nottinghamshire premises will be able to access a minimum broadband speed of at least 2Mbps by the end of 2016.
This large-scale civil engineering programme builds on the commercial rollout of fibre-based broadband within Nottinghamshire (delivered by BT and other telecommunications providers), which will extend access to 86% of premises within the County by the end of 2014.
The Better Broadband for Nottinghamshire contract was awarded to BT in August 2013 and the rollout of the infrastructure will happen in phases which will overlap each other. As soon as information is available on the areas included I the next phase of works, we will publish it on this website.
First phase underway
The first phase of work for the Better Broadband for Nottinghamshire programme is now underway. On Thursday 12 June, representatives of the organisations funding and developing the programme officially launched the first upgraded fibre broadband cabinet in Collingham near Newark.
For more information on the the indicative exchange area locations to be included as part of Phase 1, please see our where and when page.
