The areas to be covered by the next phases of the Superfast Essex programme have now been revealed and work is set to start earlier than originally planned.
The interactive map now shows which areas will be covered by the next phase of the main programme rollout (Phase 2a - bright green), and the separate focused Rural Challenge Project (Phase 2b - orange).
The next phase of the rollout being delivered by BT will take superfast broadband to a further 51,000 homes and businesses. It has also been confirmed the original deployment dates have been brought forward by almost a year. It means the work on Phase 2a is now due to start straight after Phase 1 finishes, in summer next year, and complete in 2019.
At the moment the map will only indicate whether an area is in the plan to be covered by the rollout. We will update the map with more specific timescales and details about the structures to be upgraded once further planning has been carried out.
Keep checking the map for progress in your area. It is updated monthly!
