Digital Derbyshire's secret - Timing of the Phases

Digital Derbyshire have a website that tells residents in which year they are scheduled for Fast Broadband (funded by large amounts of public money) but they seem very reluctant to tell people at which end of the year they should expect to see service - the date checker will tell you "Phase 6, 2015" - but there is no indication of what Phase 6 (for example) actually means.

I asked them - and for once got the data I needed without having to make a Freedom of Information request, and in just 9 working days!

For anyone who would like to know without that wait (and to avoid further waste in public resources in having Digital Derbyshire answer repeated and unnecessary questions) here is the timing that they indicated:

Phase 1, 2 and 3 are scheduled for 2014
Phases 4, 5, 6 and 7 are scheduled for 2015
Phases 8,9 and 10 are scheduled for 2016

The phases differ in lengths and are subject to satisfactory surveying of the area prior to the commencement of works but phase 6 should be deployed during mid to late 2015 and, as you are aware, the caveats apply.
