High Speed Broadband has Arrived
As part of the Better Broadband for Oxfordshire programme, a fibre-enabled cabinet is now live and ready to take orders in Cuddesdon & Denton.
This means that 171 residents and businesses in the parish will be able to request an upgrade to fibre-enabled broadband from a range of Internet Service Providers (ISPs). In most cases, this means that residents can select a product offering download speeds above 24Mbps following infrastructure upgrades made via the Better Broadband for Oxfordshire programme.
The aim of the Better Broadband for Oxfordshire Programme is to provide access to fibre-enabled broadband where this is not commercially viable without public sector investment.
Wheatley Cabinet 12 in Cuddesdon High Street went live on 20th January 2017. It is now sporting a large sticker declaring ‘Fibre broadband is here.’ This indicates that the cabinet is live and ready to take customer orders.

Please note that improved broadband services are not turned on automatically. To access fibre-enabled broadband, please contact your chosen ISP or use comparison sites to find available packages. There is a list of ISPs on the Better Broadband for Oxfordshire website:
If you contact an ISP, please state that you wish to order ‘fibre-enabled / superfast broadband,’ otherwise they may offer you a slower broadband service. Your chosen ISP should be able to offer any technical assistance to access fibre-enabled / superfast broadband.
There is also an Availability Checker on the Better Broadband for Oxfordshire website that you can use to compare packages:
It is also important to note that not all premises within a postcode area will necessarily be able to order superfast speeds (above 24Mbps). Premises will be able to access a range of speeds – some will get superfast broadband and others will be able to get anywhere between 2Mbps and 24Mbps, depending on distance from the cabinet.
