What's happening in Hampshire?
Posted on Thursday November 26 2015 by Alexandra Paton
We are currently in Wave 1 of our programme and are on target to reach 90% of premises in Hampshire by the end of 2015. BT Openreach engineers are working hard across Hampshire to install infrastructure. This week our figures show we have reached over 72,000 premises with fibre since the programme began and this figure is set to rise to around 75,000 by the of end of Wave 1 (December 2015).
Wave 2 of our programme will begin in January 2016. You can find out about this part of the project here: http://www.hampshiresuperfastbroadband.com/about-the-project/wave-2-information/.
Much of our current work involves ugprading Exchange Only Lines. These upgrades are more time consuming than regular Fibre to the Cabinet upgrades.
For the next few weeks our engineers are working in:
Bassett, Cadnam, Chilbolton, Hambledon, Lyndhurst, Ringwood, West Meon
