Rural folks of Cambridgeshire in need of superfast broadband
Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council will provide ₤20 million and ₤3 million respectively and the contribution from Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) will be ₤6.75 million for the project which will provide super fast broadband of 25 Mbps to 90% of the homes and businesses. The remaining will get faster broadband by 2015.
A suitable contractor will be entrusted the responsibility of carrying out the installation.
BT and Virgin Media will be glad to take up the work in cities and towns but they will not be interested in rural areas, as it will not be economical form them. There comes the challenge for the county councils.
However, for the project to succeed, the businesses, households and individuals have to exhibit their support for the cause. Their cooperation and contribution for the cause is inevitable.
Cambridge County Council will introduce their Connecting Cambridge website shortly so that the people and businesses can register their interest for the service.
The businesses and households in rural Huntingdonshire are badly in need of high speed internet. The businesses have been complaining to Ofcom about their requirement since 2008. That means there will be significant demand from the county.
Cambridge County Council will be in charge of the project and will be supported by related county councils and Peterborough city council.
The work will commence in early 2013
