Superfast Broadband deployment in Wiltshire; Public Consultation to Define the Intervention Areas.
The Council is consulting all interested parties in Wiltshire to find out about the availability of superfast broadband in the area.
In January 2013 the Council started a contract with British Telecommunications (BT) to provide superfast broadband infrastructure in Wiltshire in areas where operators would not be using their own investment.
This contract was carefully constructed to connect as many premises as possible to superfast broadband infrastructure within the funding available. However there was insufficient funding to connect all premises within the Council’s area.
The purpose of this consultation is to ensure that the next round of investment is not used in areas where there already is existing superfast broadband infrastructure. For more information please visit: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/state-aid-advice
For more information please refer to the related documents which can be access via the supporting documents tab below.
The Council has already reviewed coverage with broadband operators providing services in Wiltshire and maps of their coverage are also available to download for reference.
The consultation will be closed at 5.00pm on Monday 12th January 2015
