Connecting Shropshire

Superfast broadband coverage map

Connecting Shropshire has updated its current and projected coverage map (https://bit.ly/2S4BqTg) to show the remaining contracted superfast broadband coverage from Airband’s State Aided contract with Shropshire Council, which is planned to complete by the end of 2021 (pink dots).

The map shows whether premises in the Council area currently have access to a superfast broadband connection, whether they are planned for delivery before June 2023, or have no current/planned coverage.

Note: we define superfast broadband as a download speed of at least 30mbps.

The map is based on information provided to Connecting Shropshire in March 2020 during the Market Intelligence Review, to which the following broadband infrastructure providers contributed:

Note: Openreach (https://www.openreach.com/) declined to provide information as part of the Market Intelligence Review, so previous data was used as a baseline. Shropshire Council used Openreach’s data as of December 2018 and updated the information using local intelligence and data that is available in the public domain through the Openreach wholesale website. Shropshire Council feel this data now represents an accurate position of Openreach’s current deployment in the Shropshire Council area.

Map disclaimer

Please note that the map consists of two layers; a base map layer and an address point dataset layer. Both represent a snapshot of the datasets, which are not necessarily taken at the same time. For example, newly built houses may show on one layer but not the other and houses which have been built very recently may not show on either layer.
