BT has signed a contract for £28.5 million to provide high-speed fibre broadband to around 96% of Cheshire homes and businesses by the end of 2016. BT is contributing £9m while The Connecting Cheshire Partnership is contributing £1.85m, with a further £4m coming from the Government’s Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) funds and £13.6m from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

The initial survey work will take around eight months, so Connecting Cheshire should be in a position to announce which communities will be included in the first stage of the roll-out around December 2013.
