BROADBAND FOR WROXTON
This week Oxfordshire County Council reported that they have done their deal with BT for filling in the BT infinity gaps.
“Oxfordshire County Council has awarded a multi-million-pound contract to BT, marking the start of a two and a half-year programme to bring better broadband to thousands more homes and businesses in the county.
The £25 million programme is made up of £10 million from the council, £4 million from the government and £11 million from BT. It will build on the existing commercial footprint in the county with the aim that at least 90 per cent of all premises will have access to superfast broadband speeds of 24Mbps and above by the end of 2015.
Although an area may be served by upgraded infrastructure, the distance to this infrastructure from any particular premises in that area may mean that speeds for those premises are below 'superfast' levels of 24Mbps.
The modelling which informed the maps is based on a number of assumptions which may change following a detailed, on the ground assessment of local conditions. From August to December 2013, BT will deploy crews across Oxfordshire to assess local conditions across the rollout area. This may result in minor changes to the rollout plan.” View large version of map (pdf format, 1.1MB)

As you can see from the pdf map Wroxton St Mary Exchange area in Oxfordshire is just about covered.
The orginal 2004 website is here http://www.broadband4wroxton.org.uk/2004 where you can see nothing changes, not many lessons learnt.
