South Shropshire Updates

[link to this post]
Just a small update regarding some updates in south Shropshire.

It would appear that Bridgnorth exchange (CMBRI) has had a rather big kick in the teeth as of yesterday. Fibre plans which were from September 2013 and currently still sat on BTOR coming very soon list, have been pushed back to March 2014. Conversations I've had with engineers locally the past 2 days report that no hardware has arrived in the town and that rollout plans have been scaled back (seems about 50% of the cabinets are no longer giving data). At this time unable to determine if BDUK funds will be used to address the reduction in scale as Bridgnorth should have been within BTs commercial rollout.

The good news for those in Ludlow (WNLUD) is that a number of PCPs sites have in the past 2 weeks gone into local planning, submitted on behalf of BTOR. None have faced objections, so plans appears on track (and slightly ahead of schedule).

Thanks for the update. I'm looking to move to Shropshire, but as an IT consultant working from home the broadband situation across Bridgnorth/Much Wenlock/Church Stretton isn't promising! Hopefully by summer 2014 we'll see improvement (or at least a Northamptonshire-like coverage map).

Bridgnorth is FTTC live according to BT Wholesale when and where and Sam Knows too.

The only left out is Hollinswood is Future FTTC (RFS date set : 31/05/2014)
