Representation Summary:

Currently the rollout of superfast broadband is Fibre to the cabinet (FTTC). This limits the broadband speeds, and FTTP would ensure much higher speeds are available. These sorts of speeds are often provided in city and urban areas as standard. A more specific expectation that FTTP will be provided would be better than just "superfast broadband ready".

In practice I think it will be difficult to impose a requirement on developers to provide superfast broadband to the premises. Developers can ensure appropriate ducting to facilitate such connection but it would appear to be an onerous obligation to expect developers to provide this when it is the role of commercial service providers to connect dwellings at the standards they are able to depending on role out of their service.

It is not considered appropriate for Broadband and Connectivity to be included with the SPD as it is difficult to see how such obligations could be compliant with the CIL Regs.

It is not within the gift of the developer to provide superfast broadband. This is the responsibility of the utility companies.
