In reply to a post by RG41:
roadworks.org advised the following work is planned to erect a new PCP outside the exchange between the 19th and 25th September... assuming BT has the ability to go from build completed to RFS in 3 working days..


I guess sticking to schedule is not a concern as this work is now listed as 19th September to 2nd October, there is also another work scheduled between the 4th and 7th October to build yet another chamber...


Highway Authority: Wokingham Borough Council
Location: O/S 12/14, BROAD STREET.
Description: Build 1 concrete chamber 725mm x 255mm x 665mm deep in Footway,Install 2m of 1 way poly duct in Footway,Provide 1 core drill(s) into jointbox or building

Re: Exchange only lines in Wargrave


[re: ccxo] [link to this post]
 
I have just spoken to the Superfast Berkshire Office and was told that there was a technical problem with the originally planned positioning of the cabinet (near the Station Road/Loddon Drive junction) and a new location for the cabinet is being worked on. There is no estimate of how long this will take.

Knowing the location, more likely the NIMBY squad up in arms about it. wink

Latest update is 120 cabinets live with 23,926 total homes passed, leaves only 1 cabinet and 3 EO cabs to be installed which is a small slippage into October.

Phase 2 deployment news should be up this month.

Postcode checker that will confirm if you are in Gigaclear's West Berkshire deployment, it will only be rural areas so no towns ie Newbury/Thatcham etc.

I have entered a few postcodes and so far its just stating coming soon.

A deployment list is due within 1-2 weeks and will be on the website.

I have just checked my postcode and my address is not listed. What does this mean for me. I am on cabinet (6 - Woolhampton) which was delayed and then passed to Gigaclear for phase 2 and now it looks like I won't be getting any kind of fibre despite being smack bang in the middle of Operreach and Gigaclear customers and no real reason why I shouldn't be included (i.e. no access or other issues). Could there be a reason for this? I've tried to notify Gigaclear but I feel its just a blanket collection of demand rather than anyone really reading the enquiries.

I've just checked my postcode and get "Sorry, Gigaclear is not in your area" - RG7 4SF (Aldermaston Wharf, next to the train station). My house is a new build which was only completed in the last few months. However, upon checking some of the postcodes next to my new build they are on the list and can check the status of the build out, e.g. RG74UX and RG74JJ.

Does this mean that since my property is a new build I am totally excluded from the Gigaclear deployment even though it will pass right by my street? The BT cab I am connected to has no plans what so ever to be Fibre enabled, especially since every other property in the area will be served by Gigaclear.

I'm not sure who I would contact to raise this. I registered interest with Gigaclear a few months ago, and I also registered interest with the Superfast Berkshire website but I don't see a contact option to see if there is any option to have my new street (of only 14 properties) added since they must be running fibre right past us to get the surrounding properties.

It would be rather gutting to see all the existing developments in the area enabled and I'm stuck with 5Mbs ADSL :/

Why not ring them up using these contact details.

If you can get your neighbours interested you would have a stronger case.
