On 30th January 2013, Wiltshire Council in partnership with South Gloucestershire Council awarded a contract to BT to provide superfast broadband. 91% of all premises will be able to access superfast broadband (with speeds greater than 24 Mbps) by March 2016.
The total investment is £35.6m, with £4.6m from BDUK, £2m from South Gloucestershire Council, £15.5m from Wiltshire Council, £12.8m from BT and £0.74m from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
The first exchanges enabled under the project are expected to go live with fibre in spring 2014.
