Broadband Update February 2017

Superfast speeds for New Forest homes after broadband boost

Hundreds of homes in the New Forest will gain access to superfast broadband speeds thanks to plans by Hampshire County Council and its partners, to upgrade four broadband cabinets, which have now been approved.

The plans, to benefit more than 400 properties, have been approved by stakeholders including Natural England, New Forest National Park Authority, Verderers of the New Forest, Forestry Commission and New Forest District Council.

Those in line to enjoy broadband speeds of at least 24 megabits per second (Mbps) include, approximately:

  • 200 properties in East Boldre near Hatchet Pond
  • 90 properties in Burley
  • 90 properties in South Gorley near Fordingbridge
  • 60 properties in Brockenhurst

A 56-day statutory notice period for public comments will run until 31 March before any work can take place.
