Oxfordshire County Council has signed a £25m contract with BT to bring access to superfast broadband speeds of 24Mbps and above to at least 90% of all premises in Oxfordshire by the end of 2015.
The £25m million programme is made up of £10m from the council, £4m from the UK Government and £11m from BT.
While the initial aim of the programme is to deliver superfast broadband speeds to a minimum of 90% of premises across Oxfordshire, the County Council will continue to work with BDUK and BT to secure additional funding to enable the programme to go further.
BT engineers will soon begin surveying locations around the county and analysing the best way to roll out the network. Work will begin in January 2014.
