From the high street to the information super-highway

In 2007, the Ladygrove area of Didcot in Oxfordshire was reported as having the highest ‘healthy life expectancy’ in England, at 86 years. Many have attributed this to good sports and leisure facilities in the town, including its three large multi-purpose leisure centres.

Didcot is also well catered for in terms of commerce and recreation with the 21st century developments of the Cornerstone arts and entertainment centre, and the adjacent Orchard Centre for shopping. But equally important for residents is the digital world of online shopping and entertainment, for which modern connections are crucial.

In 2010 many residents gained a boost to their broadband speeds when BT rolled-out its new fibre-optic technology, making super-fast broadband in Didcot a reality. Indeed, some residents of streets close to the Station Road exchange, such as Haydon Road and Edinburgh Drive are getting speeds in excess of 30Mbps.

Most areas of town, including Northbourne and properties around Abingdon Road, should be getting speeds between 10Mbps to over 30Mbps, depending on factors such as what ISP they use and distance from the exchange.
