EMS are working with The Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Project to install Fibre Broadband services to one of the largest Urban Regeneration projects in the UK.
Justin Leese, Programme Director for the Government’s on-going Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) project visited the site to view progress.
Writing about his visit, Mark Jackson of ISP Review says:
"The Whitehill & Bordon regeneration project, which is a joint venture between the Dorchester Group and UK house builder Taylor Wimpey, is working to ensure that thousands of new build homes in the area will be able to access a Gigabit capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTH) broadband service from the day they move in.
The town of Bordon and nearby village of Whitehill are currently in the process of undergoing some major regeneration work, which among other things will see the local community in Hampshire being expanded from 14,000 to 23,000 people through new housing, a new town centre and construction of a relief road.
The project is also working with network provider Electronic Media Services (EMS) in order to ensure that all residents and businesses are able to benefit from access to an ultrafast “full fibre” service from day one. The developer owns the duct, while EMS are deploying and maintaining the fibre and running the active layer. Local street furniture is also being ducted to help support future 4G and 5G mobile networks (small cells)."
