Members of the six Berkshire unitary councils leading on the ‘Superfast Berkshire’ project and the Local Enterprise Partnership have signed a contract with BT that will see high-speed fibre broadband becoming available to around 91% of premises across Berkshire by the end of September 2015. The £8.06 million project is receiving £2.03m investment from BDUK, and £2.03m from Berkshire’s local authorities and TVBLEP. BT is contributing £4m.
BT plans to start surveying across Berkshire from early 2014 before embarking on the network build during 2014 and 2015. Delivery will be completed over five phases with connections made to the first premises predicted for autumn 2014.
