I got intrigued by the map attached to this tweet:
In particular, I thought it a little strange to see 2 lonely dots in the village of Bilton (just north-east of the city boundary; north-west of Preston village).
Why would KCOM offer service at 2 postcodes here without covering the whole village?
So I went looking in detail with KCOM's own postcode checker...
a) The first postcode is HU11 4ED, being the odd numbers of Highfield Crescent.
The checker reports a single property (number 7) as having Lightstream FTTP available. All other properties report availability due in summer 2017 (which is later than any Kcom deployment PR so far).
Number 7 is fed from a telegraph pole that supports a number of other properties on both odd and even (HU11 4EH) sides.
b) The second postcode is HU11 4DR, being all properties on Albemarle Rd.
Again the checker reports a single property with access available. Again with shared poles.
Why would KCOM make lightstream available just a couple of houses, almost alone in the village? It doesn't make sense.
Presumably it is a fault in the KCOM database ... but it makes me wonder how many other postcodes have a similar problem.
