Since the contract with BT was signed in September 2013 work has been under way to plan and design the proposed network. This is an intense period of activity where extensive surveying is completed. The design phase should take around 6 – 9 months from contract signature and at this point it is expected that the roll out will start from summer 2014 running until December 2015.
Following the above activity the Council intends to publish roll out plans on a phased basis. This will likely include mapping and location based information.
Further information will be published on our broadband website www.broadband.eastriding.gov.uk as soon as it is available.
IT consultant Richard Hale has saved thousands on fuel bills and slashed his annual commute by more than 20,000 miles – thanks to the Broadband East Riding programme.
Self-employed Richard said existing broadband speeds to his home in Bridlington were so slow he was forced to make a 140 mile commute to offices in York and Leeds to connect with clients.
But the arrival of superfast broadband as part of the Broadband East Riding roll-out has enabled him to stay put, ditch his long commute and work from the family home, serving customers around the globe.
Families can benefit from superfast broadband by streaming HD videos without waiting for them to buffer, download the latest movies on your TV box, browse the web quicker than before, play on-line gaming with people around the world - all at the same time - without any annoying delays.
Superfast broadband can help you to keep in touch with relatives around the world using video services without having to wait to connect and it gives you a smoother connection whilst chatting.
Superfast broadband can help businesses reach new markets, connect with customers and suppliers quickly, cut costs with online data storage and work from home or on the go.
