Better Broadband for Nottinghamshire (BBfN) 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 BBfN contract was awarded to BT in August 2013 and the rollout of the BBfN 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.
The BBfN programme is now fast approaching the commencement of the first phase of works and we have recently announced the indicative exchange area locations to be included as part of Phase 1. For more information on this, please see our where and when page.
