Councillor Alan Cockburn, deputy leader of Warwickshire County Council, said: “We recognise the vital importance of superfast broadband for both residents and businesses. In an increasingly global world it is vital that our businesses can compete on a level playing field, and good communications infrastructure is essential to ensure the vitality and sustainability of our local economy. It’s a relatively short time since this project started, and a lot has been achieved already. We appreciate that it is frustrating for those who are still waiting for faster broadband, but the team are rolling out the new fibre network just as fast as they can.”
Colin Bannon, BT’s regional director for the West Midlands, added: “CSW Broadband is a huge engineering programme but the roll-out is going extremely well. This new phase will ensure even more communities in the most difficult to reach parts of the county are able to access faster fibre broadband.”
CSW Broadband is a partnership between a number of local authorities (including Stratford District Council), BT and the Government’s broadband delivery program.
