100Mb Fibre broadband live in March

19th January 2009

The first 30 homes of the new 100Mb fibre broadband in Bornemouth are set to go live at the end of March

H20 Networks, the company who are rolling out 100Mb fibre broadband in Bournemouth, also known as "Fibrecity", have announced that by the 30th March this year the first 30 homes will be connected to the new super fast Fibre Broadband.

Residents and businesses have had since September to opt-in and there has been around a 40% take-up so far meaning around 5,600 are interested.
Residents who have a BH10 or BH11 postcode can sign up for free.

The fibre broadband is being delivered to the homes through the sewer network which is how the costs are being kept lower as there is 90% less digging and the fibre optic network can be laid much faster. The total cost is expected to be around 30 million.
