CSW Broadband is to launch a new online service to help businesses and households map progress of ambitious roll-out plans in parts of Barton, Dorsington and Dunnington.

The next locations getting access to the technology for the first time include parts of Barton and Dunnington on the River Avon, Hunningham and Wappenbury on the River Leam, and parts of Pillerton Hersey near the River Dene, the CSW Broadband partnership announced today.

Engineers from Openreach – the business responsible for Britain’s largest phone and broadband network – will begin the upgrades in the next few months, and the first households and businesses will start to go ‘live’ in the New Year.

The latest update coincides with the launch of a new online map – www.cswbroadband.org.uk/latestmap – which is designed to give local households and businesses more detail than ever before about the CSW Broadband roll-out.

Councillor Kam Kaur, portfolio holder for customer and transformation for lead partner Warwickshire County Council, said: “CSW Broadband continues to bring broadband to some of the most rural parts of our area. It is just over three years since the project celebrated the first cabinet to go live and now over 58,000 properties can connect to the new fibre network.”
