Superfast broadband rolled out to more than 1,800 homes across Windsor and Maidenhead

Superfast broadband rolled out to more than 1,800 homes across Windsor and Maidenhead

The roll-out of superfast broadband has seen the service made available to 1,840 more properties across Windsor and Maidenhead.

The Royal Borough says more people in the borough are now benefiting from the multi-million pound Superfast Berkshire project.

It is a partnership between the six Berkshire unitary councils, the Local Enterprise Partnership, BT and the government's Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) scheme.

It is bringing broadband to places which fall outside the private sector's commercial plans.

The borough said broadband speeds of up to 80mbps are now available to a further:

  • 720 properties in Ascot, North Ascot and Sunninghill
  • 649 properties in the Colnbrook area (some of these fall in the Royal Borough)
  • 139 properties in Windsor

There are about 65,500 households in the borough and current superfast broadband availability is 90 per cent.

The number was 87.8 per cent before the project and its target is to reach 92.5 per cent.
