The purpose of this update is to inform you of the publication of a map showing where Connecting Cheshire will be rolling out fibre broadband over the next 2 years and to update you on the work required to facilitate deployment
The map on the new website illustrates where communities throughout the county can expect the high-speed technology to arrive by the end of summer 2015. Just add your phone number and search.
First Phase Announcement
The first phase announcement will take place on 6th December, when Connecting Cheshire will make public which specific areas will be included in their first stage roll-out with further phased announcements thereafter.
Homes and businesses in at least 20 telephone exchange areas will see upgrades as part of the first phase and be able to contact their Internet Service Provider to order a switch to fibre broadband from the end of March 2014 onwards.
BT's network will be open to all communications providers on an equal wholesale basis and so Cheshire consumers and businesses will benefit from a highly competitive market, in turn bringing greater choice and lower prices.

For those who use Amazon they have an option of...
