We’ve recently learned that BT is planning to upgrade the broadband service available in Hinton. Under a contract awarded to BT by Oxfordshire County Council, much of the county’s infrastructure is to be upgraded using “Fiber to the Cabinet” technology. This should bring faster broadband speeds to Hinton. We estimate that most of us in Hinton should be able to get speeds of between 15 and 25 Mbps – far faster than the typical 3-5 Mbps that we get today. Current indications are that the new service should be available by the end of 2014, although BT have yet to make an official announcement about their plans for the Longworth Exchange area in which Hinton lies.
