Superfast Broadband project – Newsletter October 2015

The CSW Broadband project will bring improved broadband speeds across Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire – particularly in the rural areas. Funded by Central Government and Local Authority money the targets are to achieve 90% coverage at superfast speeds (minimum 24Mbps) and 100% coverage at what is known as the Universal Service Commitment, meaning a minimum of 2Mbps.

Its aim to achieve this through the provision of a wholesale network, that will cover those areas that will not be reached through commercial broadband roll-out plans; providing a high quality wholesale network is that it will not only increase superfast broadband coverage, but will also enable a wide range of providers to offer services, thus increasing competition and driving down prices for subscribers.
