Fastershire approved Gigaclear as the contractor for most of its "Phase 2" lots back in Dec 2016. Since then some work has started in several of the lots. I'm in lot 3c, which was scheduled to be the last to be rolled out (my local area was originally due to start in Q1 2020, but was moved forward to Q4 2018). The build in the first area (Highnam) was due to start in May 2018, with several other areas due to start in June 2018 (Ledbury, Mathon, Minsterworth).
I've been trying to track progress, but there is no information available - Fastershire no longer reply to my e-mails. However, looking at Gloucestershire County Council's list of planned roadworks there are no current or planned works (for Gigaclear) in the area covered by lot 3c. There are works listed in the other lot areas.
Is anyone aware of any Gigaclear builds starting in the areas I mentioned above? Or am I right to worry that the rollout is already falling behind. Since there has to be advance notice of works, I suspect that no build will start for at least another 3 months, which will put them well behind (and since I'm near the end of the list for lot 3c, my prospect of usable broadband is receding into the distant future)
