After a frustrating few months of hope, despair and annoyance, I'm still without fibre broadband.
I'm on an EO line, and the Superfast Openreach website says:
We're working with government and industry to explore ways to bring Superfast fibre to as many people as possible but don't have a plan for your area yet. You might consider co-funding fibre access in your community.
I was told earlier this year that it should be ready to order by the end of March, only to be let down. I've spoken to my local councillor, with the following reply:
We’re very much aware that EO lines fed directly from the exchange to customers’ premises are a national problem, although it affects a relatively small number of lines. We continue to work on technical solutions (such as fibre to the premises or installing a new cabinet) but this can be economically challenging. Unfortunately, we can’t give a timescale but, when we have a solution, we plan to deploy this at exchanges that have been fibre-enabled and where it’s commercially viable – or possibly via a public funding route.
So frustrating! Any ideas as to how to try and make any progress?
