Public consultation opened to further extend coverage of superfast broadband across Warwickshire
Published on Wednesday, 2nd November 2016
A public consultation for broadband availability has opened and residents of the borough are being urged to take part.
The Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire (CSW) broadband team is looking to extend superfast broadband coverage even further across the area during the Contract 3 phase of the project.
To achieve this, Warwickshire County Council - as lead authority for the project - intends to procure further coverage of NGA broadband infrastructure (capable of delivering download speeds of at least 30 Mbps) to areas in Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire where such broadband is currently unavailable, by the end of 2017.
The CSW team have already asked suppliers where they plan to roll out their superfast broadband networks over the next 3 years and have now opened the public consultation, which gives suppliers and residents an opportunity to comment on the areas that, it is claimed, will be covered during this time.

The consultation runs until November 30th.
