Bathgate Cabinet 43


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

Does anyone have up to date info on Bathgate cabinet 43 (EH48 2GG). Is serves part of a new housing estate but was deemed commercially unviable by BT.

On the OR where and when checker it now shows as Enabled Area.

Click you flag and it tells you that your cabinet is not enabled yet but is in their plans.

Believe it will be part of the Scottish BDUK project

likley to be excluded from commercial as developer proably only asked for voice (isa there a new cab at esntance to developement) or cab did not exist or had too few connected premises when Fibre decisions made -- fortuntely it must have had a postcode so probably whyt eligible by BDUK -- otherwise would have been missed by both programmes --

It's 1 of 3 cabinets that serve a new housing development (planned to be over 2000 properties). The area has poor ADSL speeds (max around 3Mb).

The first two cabinets were included in the commercial roll out but only 1 done (the council rejected the location for the second). This one was missed as when the commercial plans were made the development in this area was limited.

I've checked with Digital Scotland and they are now indicating a timeframe between July & December 2015.

As you say the positive side is that it's now in the BDUK roll out plans.
