A new online tool has been launched to help Cambridgeshire residents find out when superfast broadband will be coming to their area.
The new ‘my area’ pages are now live on the Connecting Cambridgeshire website - www.connectingcambridgeshire.co.uk. The site includes an A-Z list of 267 areas across the county and broad timescales for the broadband roll-out plan.
Each area has its own page with information about date ranges for when superfast broadband is expected to be delivered in the area, if the area has a broadband champion and how to help more people get online.
The broadband roll-out is expected to be covered in eight phases with the final work completed by the end of 2015.
Councillor Ian Bates, cabinet member for growth and planning at Cambridgeshire County Council, which leads the Connecting Cambridgeshire programme, said: “We know many residents and businesspeople are keen to find out ‘where and when’ the broadband roll-out will be happening in their area, so we have developed the ‘my area’ pages. This is just the start, will release as much information as we can and add more specific details as the broadband programme gets underway and cabinets start to go ‘live with fibre’.”
