East Sussex superfast broadband well ahead of schedule!

Work to bring superfast broadband to East Sussex is well ahead of schedule despite the recent torrential downpours and flooding.

The first areas due to become fibre enabled as part of the huge programme of engineering include Burwash, Etchingham, Hadlow Down, Heathfield, Horam, Mayfield, Robertsbridge, Rotherfield and Rushlake Green.

Throughout the wettest winter since records began engineers have already installed more than half of the new fibre cabinets which will serve these areas, with people in these communities expected to be able to place orders for fibre broadband before Easter.

Work on the ground has already started in a number of new locations that will benefit from the second phase of the project, expected to “go live” later this year. These include: Buxted, Chelwood Gate, Chiddingly, Danehill, Framfield, Guestling, Halland, Newick, Ninfield, Nutley, Baldslow, Bexhill, Castleham, Cooden, Hastings and Uckfield.
