The Central Superfast broadband roll-out is surging ahead to meet the high demand for faster fibre connections for homes and businesses across Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes.
Central Superfast has now reached more than 23,500 premises across the area that would not be able to get better broadband otherwise, and is on track to exceed its original targets, bringing wider coverage for hard to reach areas.
Central Superfast is a partnership between Central Bedfordshire, Bedford Borough and Milton Keynes Councils and BT to deliver superfast broadband services to residents and businesses.
Since June 2014 when the first green roadside cabinets were switched on, excellent progress has been made.
Planning is now under way to extend the roll-out further using additional funding from the government’s Superfast Extension Programme (SEP) to improve broadband coverage for harder to reach areas and new developments during a second phase in 2016-2017.
