Re: West Berks Gigaclear


[re: lagrian] [link to this post]
 
No the commercial properties have no effect, it comes down to how many premises can be improved by the upgrade- in phase 1 it was a limited budget, so the most premises that would benefit for the least cost got upgraded.

Their are private funding options, £30,000 to £40,000 raised will see Openreach match fund and install a fttc cab, ideally the lines connected to 6 in Woolhampton could do with being routed to 12 just outside the exchange, though that would be expensive.

BT and Openreach may invest further into West Berks as they did not bid on the open tender process for phase 2, they wanted sole exclusivity for phase 2. The project team has ended up with a far greater result with the Gigaclear option.

Also the gigaclear page now has a map with colored phase areas but you cannot zoom in, so of limited use.

As stuff goes live I should get the postcodes supplied.

In the meantime I can retrace their map to create a likely postcode lookup, have done this for numerous providers who are not great at publishing postcode lists.

Re: Exchange only lines in Wargrave

In reply to a post by michaelporter:
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.


Can of our resident gurus throw any light on what progress (if any) has been made with this issue please?

The new location was off the A321 towards the exchange on school road, the eo cab is one of 4 left in phase 1, will ask for a update.

Thanks, will the new location have any impact on the speeds we will see at the premises as most houses will be further from the new location than the originally planned site?

New user here... just moved to the Great Shefford area and trying to catch up on the Gigaclear situation.

If the current deployment include Lambourn, whats the likelihood it'll extend to Great Shefford?

Concerned that it'll be sidetracked due to the lack of properties in the area.

Thanks

Have you managed to get any information on when something will happen?

Great Shefford had FTTC live already so you may be able to get faster broadband, the Gigaclear phase 2 is to cover the areas missed by phase 1- so low populated areas will be covered as they will extend coverage to 99%.
