I live in Helmdon in South Northamptonshire. Locally there is a private/community Superfast
It would be interesting to see an update to this page as some areas had their FTTC enabled in early February 2014. I also find that my ISP shows that FTTC is available based on my postcode but that the cabinet in the street has not been upgraded yet. Also according to the BT Openreach website FTTC is scheduled to be available in 2014 and yet the interactive map only shows projected availability as 2017.
I appreciate you are only a small team but keeping a website like this updated is really important to avoid being inundated with emails and information requests.
Thank you for bringing the ‘key dates’ page on our website to our attention.
Please rest assure that over the next couple of weeks the broadband team will be adding new pages and updating existing ones to reflect the current position and progress of the Superfast Northamptonshire project as a whole.
Thank you for the response and I look forward to the updated information. I get a general feeling that the rollout is going well. It was a nice surprise when I noticed the Clopton exchange is included in phase 2 which brings a ray of hope for superfast broadband which I didn’t have before.
I ran the local broadband campaign, collating interest and passing that onto BT, that eventually led to ADSL being enabled on the Clopton exchange back in April 2004. Can’t believe it’s been ten years and now hopefully within the next 1-2 years we should see FTTC become available.
Is there a roll-out plan yet? Or dates for various post codes?
Unfortunately it is too early at this stage of the project to provide any further information on when areas may gain access to superfast broadband. However, information regarding the overall deployment plan will be released on the project website at the earliest opportunity. More detailed information on areas due to ‘go live’ will also be announced as the project progresses. The project’s website is the best source of information and the latest news.
Can we assume that the prefered bidder has been confirmed as only one bidder completed the process?
The County Council will confirm the chosen supplier in due course
