The obligation rests with the developers to work with Openreach to plan connection, not the other way round:

Sounds more like your developer who needs whipping into shape for getting so far into the project without securing the services their customers will want.

Hi Dblox,

 

As I said, with respect to Oxfordshire it should have been a condition of granting planning permission that the developer/OR installed fibre.  As the development is so new it could be outside its scope but it may be worth contacting the Better Broadband for Oxfordshire website.

 

Oxfordshire County Council has signed a £25m contract with BT to bring access to superfast broadband speeds of 24Mbps and above to at least 90% of all premises in Oxfordshire by the end of 2015.

The £25m million programme is made up of £10m from the council, £4m from the UK Government and £11m from BT.

While the initial aim of the programme is to deliver superfast broadband speeds to a minimum of 90% of premises across Oxfordshire, the County Council will continue to work with BDUK and BT to secure additional funding to enable the programme to go further.

 

Unfortunately BDUK funding does not reach as far as South Korea Smiley LOL

Best regards,
