The next phases of Connected Counties superfast broadband programme is planned to provide fast broadband to more than 1700 households across the villages in the Royston West and Rural area in the next two years (the urban areas of Royston and Great Ashby are covered by commercial broadband roll out). Although there may be some outlying houses that are still not covered this should deliver fast broadband to most people (Jacks Hill, Newnham and Upper Bygrave appear to be exceptions at present. Steve Jarvis is investigating what can be done about this).

Availability dates may change and there are some villages where some areas will be dealt with later but the current expected dates are:

Ashwell    – spring 2018
Bygrave – summer 2018 to summer 2019
Clothall – summer 2018 to summer 2019
Graveley   already available
Hinxworth – spring 2019
Kelshall – spring 2018
Newnham – not planned
Radwell – summer 2018 to summer 2019
