Latest Superfast Broadband cabinets go live

Improving broadband has been a long term priority of Vale4Business. In August 2013 Oxfordshire County Council, in partnership with BT and the Government, launched the Better Broadband for Oxfordshire Project.

75 per cent of respondents to the BIS research cited access to high speed broadband as very important or important. There have been two phases to this project to date.  The first phase was a £25 million investment funded by Oxfordshire County Council, the government and BT.

The second phase saw investment of £10.68 million made up of funding from the district councils, Oxfordshire County Council, BT, OxLEP, SEMLEP and government match funding.  This included a contribution of £250,000 from Vale Council which was matched by government.  It also included prioritisation for the key business parks in the Vale.

The next phase will see re-investment of savings achieved when the take up of superfast broadband has been over 20 per cent in Oxfordshire to achieve over 96% coverage in the Vale.

The latest coverage and the roll-out plans are available here.
