The Better Broadband programme is now in the final stage of Phase 3 delivery, which is due to be completed in summer 2020. The Better Broadband for Oxfordshire programme, is a partnership between Oxfordshire County Council, BT and BDUK (Department for Digital, Media, Culture and Sport). It has helped to bring superfast broadband coverage in Oxfordshire to over 97% of homes and businesses, with 78,846 premises connected; 648kms of fibre laid; 705 fibre cabinets stood (and continuing!) under the programme. More than 70% of premises connected under the programme have upgraded to a superfast broadband service, which is one of the highest sign-up rates in the country.
The Better Broadband for Oxfordshire programme has now completed its planned work in West Oxfordshire. Further roll-out is being carried out by West Oxon District Council, which is separate from the Better Broadband for Oxfordshire Programme.
