FIBRE broadband cabinets in Henley have gone “live”, meaning that residents and businesses can request an upgraded service from their internet service provider.

The move is part of Better Broadband for Oxfordshire, a £25 million programme designed to ensure that at least 90 per cent of the county will have access to speeds of at least 24 megabits per second by the end of this year.

The partners are Oxfordshire County Council, BT and the Government’s Broadband Delivery UK.

Councillor Nick Carter, the council’s cabinet member for business and customer services, said: “Superfast broadband will help local businesses thrive and ensure residents in rural communities get the benefits of online information, entertainment and communication.”

Steve Henderson, BT’s regional broadband partnership director, said: “The rollout of fibre broadband across Oxfordshire is gathering pace as we reach more communities, bringing the benefits of high speed broadband to more and more families and businesses.”
