BT has stated that the technology has been rolled out to more than 2,600 premises in Chippy – which it mistakenly refers to as an “Oxfordshire village”.
Engineers are still working locally, with the aim of more than 3,300 premises across town being able to use the fibre broadband within weeks.
The investment in Chippy is part of a £2.5 billion fibre broadband roll-out programme, and BT has already delivered it to nearly 180,000 homes and businesses across our county.
Chippy is the 19th Oxfordshire exchange to be upgraded, and the third in David Cameron’s constituency – Witney and Carterton were both upgraded last year.
David Cameron said of the arrival of high-speed broadband in Chippy:
“The internet has become an integral part of daily life for many of my constituents and it is great that local people now have the option of connecting to this exciting technology…
“With access to fibre broadband, local firms can explore new ways of working and speed up vital operations, boosting their ability to compete.”
Fibre broadband means that families can download a movie, watch a TV replay service, surf the web and play games online all at the same time, says BT.
Not bad for people living in a little “village”, eh, BT?
