September Update

Cab deployment continues and the list looks to be updated every 2 weeks, best place to check the cab progress.

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

The public consultation for BDUK 2 has been published, along with 2 maps Fibre and USC coverage that the main project will deliver.

Also their is a excel sheet with the proposed state aid classification for each postcode as of July 2014.

http://www.superfastberkshire.org.uk/index.aspx?arti...

On the fibre map their are green areas that are planned to be connected but are at risk of not achieving superfast broadband ie 24Mbps+. What is slightly odd is that its not taken account of the cab locations which in many green areas would turn grey once the service is live.

Gang,

For what it's worth, I can confirm that work has started in Pangbourne, and that the new Cabinet has already been installed for P8, at the corner of Reading Road and Bourne Road. Diggers showed up on Friday, new Cabinet in place on Saturday.

No word on how long it takes to get everything wired up, tested and running, but work is underway.

Regards,

-PM

Its about 3 months for each batch of cabinets, cabs 4/5/7 along with 8 on the Pangbourne exchange are estimated to be completed by December 31st.

Cab 10 and the EO lines on Pangbourne are still in the suvery stage.

Interesting - I am in RG7 4GB, and yet it's telling me that I am not connected to that cabinet with my phone lines... How accurate is the data..???

Give me a team of 100 people for a month and will be able to tell you.

In the meantime RG7 4GB is split between two cabinets

The vast majority on a cabinet that is live for FTTC via the Burghfield Common exchange (cab 4)
and then a few on Reading South (cab 66) that is part of the project.

Yeah - I am connected to Cab 4, according to various checkers, but they are not committing to when it's going to happen... frown

Address CHARLEN HOUSE, READING ROAD, BURGHFIELD, READING, RG30 3RF on Exchange BURGHFIELD COMMON is served by Cabinet 4

Has the following shown:
FTTC Range A (Clean) 69.5 52.3 20 15 -- Available
FTTC Range B (Impacted) 60.4 35 20 10.1 -- Available

A google check on those two postcodes suggests 2.5 miles distance between the two areas, and as VDSL2 range is pretty much 2km this explains why nothing is showing up for you, since VDSL2 will bring no benefit. Distance to the cabinet itself looks to be around 4 to 4.5km from your postcode.

So cabinet 4 is live, nothing is showing up for your postcode due to the distance to cabinet.

Copper rearrangement - rare and might be possible but who picks up the bill.

For now the likelihood is that the project will ignore you as goal is 90% superfast and you are in that 1 in 10 that's not so easy to solve.

Not good news, but that is the reality for now.
