Openreach have today provided us with the following update:
"I can confirm that we are currently sat in the survey and planning stage, This is where we upload the initial details onto our workforce systems, check capacity in our network and exchange, and send out a survey officer to check that the physical geography and plan lines up with what we have on our systems. At this stage we can also determine if any traffic management or road closure are required, and if so we will need to line up local highways. Once the survey returns are back we move into planning. During the planning stage our engineers will provide a solution based on the survey to give the best speeds possible. They will also order kit and build the whole plan on our systems to create a pipeline of work for our workforce and produce the job packs"
The next progress update will be provided in May.
Registrations for the project have now closed. If you were contacted to participate in this project, but did not register, you can still benefit from access to the gigabit-capable fibre broadband once it is installed.
