Superfast Broadband

Another broadband update. Hampshire County Council are running a consultation on how to spend their next tranche of funds for “Next Generation Access” internet upgrades.

I have responded that some of their data appears to be incorrect, as Abbotts Walk is marked as a Grey area on their map, that is it has/will have shortly commercial provision of Superfast Lines. So far I’ve not been able to get any information from BT Openreach that they will be upgrading the local cabinet. So actually believe it Abbotts Walk should be marked as a white area, that is without provision and potentially eligible for additional state funding.

Abbotts Walk may be mistakenly ‘Grey’ as Virgin Media has provision nearby, but doesn’t actually extend in to the development.
