The Coverage Map shares the latest information available to the county council on current and future provision of broadband across Oxfordshire. Information comes from a number of sources and provides an indicative picture of coverage for premises in the county. The map can be used to provide an estimate of existing speeds available to premises and deatils of any planned upgrades in the near future. Additionally, the map can also show areas where our market research has suggested fibre broadband is already available or will be commercially in the next two years (commercial coverage plans relate to a number of different fibre broadband providers).
The plans for the current scope of coverage through the Better Broadband for Oxfordshire Programme may change or be delayed. This is because as the project progresses, the supplier continues to undertake planning and survey work on the ground across the county. This involves going out on site to survey all the underground ducts serving homes and businesses in the planned coverage area. If surveys encounter unforeseen difficulties, plans may be forced to change. Current and planned commercial coverage may also be subject to change.
The maps and the related coverage information contained on this site are indicative and should not be relied on or otherwise treated as a guarantee of current or future provision.
