This is all a part of our mission to bring Hyperfast, future-ready fibre broadband to rural villages across East Anglia.
Main build works are the main construction of our fibre network and involve installing fibre cables in your street or through overhead poles to be able to bring a future-ready connection directly to your door. We are forecasting that these works will take around 10 weeks to complete, and once these works are complete we can then start the connection process.
These are when we anticipate main build works to start in these villages.
Main builds starting this month (October):
• Belchamp Walter;
• Bures Hamlet;
• Great Yeldham;
• Steeple Bumstead;
• High Easter;
• Ford End;
• Willows Green.
Main builds starting in November:
• Belchamp St. Paul;
• Castle Hedingham;
• Wakes Colne;
• Wickham St. Paul.
Main builds starting in December:
• Belchamp Otten;
• Little Yeldham;
• Mount Bures;
• Tilbury Juxta Clare.
Main builds starting in January:
• Great Maplestead.
We are currently carrying out main build works in Foxearth and Pentlow, Eight Ash Green and Dale Close.
As well as all of this, we are planning to start pre-build works at the end of this month (October) in:
• Great Bromley;
• Little Bentley;
These pre-build works will involve clearing some of the existing duct infrastructure in preparation to lay our fibre cables and carrying out other minor civil engineering activities.
So, between now and January we will be building (pre-build and main build) in 35 villages, making them one step closer to getting Hyperfast fibre broadband.
Our free connection offer (worth £225) is still open in all these villages UNTIL main build works are complete. After that, when you NEED to access Hyperfast broadband in the future, you will need to PAY to get connected!
If you live in one of these villages and would like to access Hyperfast, future-ready fibre in your home, pre-order a connection by visiting www.countybroadbandfibre.co.uk/futureready and entering your postcode or call the County Broadband Hyperfast services team on 01376 562002.
