North Yorkshire - phase 3


[link to this post]
 
It seems that North Yorkshire has signed their phase 3 contract with BT.

Given that TBB reported the money was available for this over 2 years ago (here), it shows how big a hole those new EU guidelines created in the timescales.

It is another £30 million project (almost as large as the original phase 1 contract for £33m), but will cover 14,239 premises, of which 12,500 should be full fibre.

I also just found 3 North Yorkshire cabinets that have G.Fast pods added to them.

Nowhere in the county has been listed in the pilot rollout reports as yet.

If ready to order always happy to learn which ones, if just attached but dormant not so interested.

The phase 3 procurement dragged on - it was originally slated to be awarded at the end of March 2017. When the process was cancelled and restarted I thought it might have been to change the contract terms to permit awarding some coverage to Openreach and some to a fixed wireless operator.

Being cynical you do wonder if the process was stretched out until a decision on USO had been made so that even though less premises will be passed by Openreach alone, rather than a mix of Openreach and fixed wireless, it won't be SFNY stumping up for the final 5% to get 10Mb/s.
