Re: Exchange only lines in Wargrave

2)No way to confirm as the work has been postponed and wont resume until phase 2 of the BDUK Berkshire project- plans can change.

As for why the EO was dropped, its likely cost/benefit was too high and their are more cost effective areas for phase 1 to fund.

3)The plans for your area will depend on phase 2- this is currently in procurement will have the contract awarded in June 2015. Planning will take a few months so deployment will be end 2015- to end 2017.

Nothing can be done to acclerate this process, its a case of waiting and councillors are unlikely to shed any further light.

Phase 2 funding is larger then phase 1 funding, so Berkshire should exceed the 95% superfast target set by the goverment, just a case of waiting for phase 2 plans.

March/Early April

The 31st has passed and the total of cabinets has increased from 50 to 71 by the 2nd of April,14,179 total homes passed.

Their are 19 cabinets that are delayed from the March 31st target, openreach are still behind on the planned date but are working to bring the project back on track- cabinets should go live in early-mid April.

May Update

The project has been a bit quiet due to delays but a updated list of 'targeted cabinets' has been published- the delayed March cabinets have been moved to the 30 of June and the next set for 30th September have been listed.

Phase 2 procurement is continuing with bids now in and the contract will be awarded by the end of June with details in early July.

There seems to have been a change in the roll-out map at Supefast Berkshire that at first sight doesn't make sense, perhaps someone can confirm or at least clarify. Previously Midgham, Beenham and Woolhampton, all RG7 on the Woolhampton Exchange had a go live date of Sep 15. This has changed so that Midgham and Woolhampton are now in the Under Investigation category and Chapel Row, previously Under Investigation is now seeing a go live of Sep 15. As the exchange is located in Woolhampton and a new cabinet has been put outside the exchange would it be likely that the exchange location would not get FTTC but a small village would? I tried emailing the Superfast Berks site but got no reply.

Cabs 1,2,3,4 and EO 12 (Outside the exchange) are all down for the 30th September on the Woolhampton exchange, these should all still go live but with the phase 2 announcement their could be a change.

The Beenham cab has gone live recently so work is progressing in the area, just have to wait for the cabinets to go live.

July Update

Phase 1

88 cabinets now completed covering 19,054 homes, a further 31 are due before the phase completes in September.

Phase 2
Has been announced the contract has been split between Gigaclear for West Berkshire to cover 11.700 homes with £3.7m of public funding and 16m by Gigaclear by the end of 2017. Build to being in November 2015 and estimated to be completed by mid 2017.

Call Flow solutions will cover parts of Windsor and Maidenhead (11 cabinets) on the Windsor and Wargrave exchanges-, will also adress area's around Burchett’s Green and
Horton.

£415,000 public funding from the council is being supported with a contribution of £120,000 from Call Flow Soultions, planning to being in July with completion by mid 2016.

Areas of Reading and Wokingham missed out due to a technicality to get a Call Flow Solution bid.

WarwickNet will cover buisness parks commericaly and Hyperoptic will do the same in Reading.

Press release below for more details.

http://www.superfastberkshire.org.uk/CHttpHandler.as...

13,450 Homes total with a £20m budget.

It will be interesting to see the coverge plans by Gigaclear for West Berkshire as most villages and towns are covered either commercially or via phase 1 by Openreach, though their are still villages not covered.

Cabinet 6 which covers Midgham was definitely on the list for Sep 15 but now seems to have had its status changed to Under Investigation What would be the reason for this and why would EO (12) suddenly be getting it when it was not listed previously? BTW EO (12) covers the Middletons, not that I for one second would suggest they were getting preferential treatment smile Sorry to be a pain but I need to give the villagers a reason as there is a high expectation for Sep15

But if the DSLAM is outside the exchange, they aren't going to see any improvement up there are they, still too far.

Basically its distance- if pcp 6 was enabled if would benefit Woolhampton, Migham is too far away for FTTC to work, would need to build a new pcp and FTTC twin.

Gigaclear will extend coverage to 99% so you will likely see FTTP, its just a case of when as the build dates are November 2015 to start and finish by mid 2017, have to wait for the deployment news.

The problem with the coverage map is that it is Postcode based- quite a few cabinets have different postcodes that can be some distance apart- so if the cab goes live all the postcode areas change to reflect this.
A better map would be to show line speed from FTTC- that way you would see which area's benefit and those that do not as they are too far away.
