We are pleased to inform you that phase one of the Superfast Surrey Programme is well underway. You may have heard in the media that there are now households and business premises in Dorking who are able to access Superfast broadband provided through Surrey County Council's programme. By the end of September this year this will have extended to 15,000 premises across Surrey.
Available in September!
Some of these premises fall into Chobham village! Residents may have already noticed BT vans and engineers preparing the local infrastructure. We have been informed that households and business premises in the following postcodes in Chobam are included in phase one, meaning that most of them will then be in a position to order a Superfast service by end of September.
A programme of works of this scale does of course have its challenges and there could be some properties in the above areas that will need extra attention from the programme to get them access to Superfast services. From September the Superfast Surrey Broadband Team will start the process of identifying those properties and look at finding solutions, such as alternative technologies or provision of additional funds from those affected to compliment the public sector's contribution.

Chobham village residents and businesses can expect some correspondence from the Superfast Surrey Broadband Team in the near future with more details about Surrey County Council's programme and when they can contact a service provider to access Superfast broadband (We are probably meant to be impartial, but here at the Chobham.net team we recommend Plus Net for great value and customer service).
The Superfast Surrey Broadband Team will be in touch with the parish as work progresses in Chobham. You can also check where a postcode area sits within the deployment programme by using the postcode checker on the website www.superfastsurrey.org.uk
