Superfast rollout in Warwickshire gathering pace

Tuesday, December 16th 2014 by Editorial
Fibre optic rollout across Warwickshire continues to provide benefits to thousands of households and businesses.

The rollout of improved fibre optic broadband connectivity is gathering pace in Warwickshire, with more than 20,000 people now able to access this service across the county.

Communities across Hurley, Kingsbury and Wood End are the latest to have benefited from the ongoing Coventry, Solihull & Warwickshire (CSW) Broadband Fibre Optic Rollout Programme, the Tamworth Herald reports.

Councillor Alan Cockburn, Deputy Leader of Warwickshire County Council, told the publication: "The rollout is really gathering pace now and communities are really benefiting from having much better access to information and services."

He added that it was just nine months ago that the first fibre optic cabinet went live under the CSW Programme, but in the following months, thousands of people have been connected to the network and are now reaping the rewards of improved access to broadband connectivity.

Lead partners Warwickshire County Council and BT have now completed the installation of the programme's 100th fibre optic roadside cabinet, which is in Tamworth Road, Kingsbury.
