Map Help

As the CSW Broadband project has evolved, so has the technology that we use. We are now able to present a map that enables users to zoom right down to property level, so that you can see exactly what is happening in your area. Here is some information to help you get the most out of this map:

Area mapping

The colours indicate the status of each area in our programme. A brief description is given below. Click on the links for more information.

Green – superfast broadband is available in this area. There may be two shades of this colour on the map, the darker shade shows which areas we estimate will achieve superfast and the lighter shade indicates which areas may fall below that level (based on the distance from the cabinet).  Learn more …

Pink – work is currently being carried out in this area. Learn more …

Blue – parts of these areas are in Wave 6, which started in April 2017. Learn more …

Orange – work is planned in this area for Wave 7, which started in July 2017. Learn more…

Amber – this area is in planning as part of Contract 2.  Learn more …

White – awaiting further funding. Learn more …

Grey or black – one or more commercial providers are operating in this area, or have said that they will be providing service here by the end of 2019. Because this information is provided in commercial confidence we are not able to state which provider has said that they will go to particular areas.

Hatched – these areas are under review as an alternate provider has said that they will be providing services here by the end of 2019. Because this information is provided in commercial confidence we are not able to state which provider has said that they will go to particular areas.

Please note that the area mapping is by 7-digit postcodes. This follows the national system. Unfortunately, however, telecoms infrastructure does not follow postcodes as one cabinet serves a number of postcodes, but one postcode may be served by a number of cabinets. Therefore it is advisable to zoom into the map to see what information we have about your property.

Property-level mapping

Some properties have stars on them of different colours.

No Star:

Those properties without a star are anticipated to have superfast broadband by 2019 **

Red Star:

You are in an area that is awaiting further funding. We are doing all that we can to bring in additional funding to take the network further.

Red and Yellow Star:

There is currently no planned superfast coverage here, but the area is in scope for consideration under Contract 3. We will not know until the procurement process is completed which areas will be included in the Contract 3 rollout, and hope to be able to map the additional coverage during the autumn of this year.

Green and Yellow Star:

This means that an alternative supplier (not BT) has said that they will be providing superfast broadband by the end of 2019**. We are not able to intervene in areas where a provider has said that they will be rolling out superfast broadband.

** Because this information is provided in commercial confidence we are not able to state which provider has said that they will go to particular areas.

 

Check your status

We have introduced a new system to make it easier to find information about your property. To see if anything is planned, either through this project or from commercial providers, use our unique property checker, which shows the currently planned status (down to property level) up to the end of 2019.

You simply need to enter your postcode and you will then see a list of premises and their status. The information was derived from the Open Market Review and Public Consultation that we carried out in preparation for the Contract 3 procurement.

If the coverage has been promised by the commercial provider, then we are bound by commercial confidentiality and cannot give further details. However, if the upgrades are planned through the CSW Broadband project then you can check the status on our latest map and on the Rolling 12-Month Plan.
