Rural Broadband update

Oxfordshire County Council has awarded a multi-million-pound contract to BT, marking the start of a two and a half-year programme to bring better broadband to thousands more homes and businesses in the county.

The £25 million programme is made up of £10 million from the council, £4 million from the government and £11 million from BT. It will build on the existing commercial footprint in the county with the aim that at least 90 per cent of all premises will have access to superfast broadband speeds of 24Mbps and above by the end of 2015.

This map has been published by the Council and appears to show that Wardington should receive 24Mbps broadband by the end of 2015.  However, until the detailed plans are released we will not be sure who will receive this connectivity.
