Another Broadband update!

Hampshire County Council are conducting another consultation on where there spending programme for superfast broadband upgrades.

This apparently follows on from a review of postcode provision in April. Unfortunately, this still does not include any of the Abbotts Walk postcodes despite having sent them to them and that they exist on the council systems (for school catchment, etc)

The previous post detailing this is here. I’d encourage responses to the consultation to help make the case for getting this little bit of Winchester up to speed.

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.
