I was wondering if someone could help me to get info on what is happening in Anglesey. Up until a couple of months ago the area in which I live LL65 4LN was a hive of Openreach activity with engineers working on a lot of the green cabinets along the road to my village, and cables (ie: the black and yellow stripe one) have been installed ready for the fibre wires. However, all work has stopped in the last two months and the date for installation which had been July, then December 2014 has now changed to the category of “under review”. I have tried to find out what is happening without success. I get the impression that Llanfaethlu (my exchange) has been placed in limbo and forgotten about.
At the same time the BT broadband service we have has been steadily getting worse; are they reducing maintenance due to the impending arrival of Fibre, I don’t know? When I first moved to Anglesey about 4 years ago I was getting 1.7Mbps to 1.9 Mbps which then dropped to 1.4Mbps to 1.7Mbps and now hovers around 1.0Mbps to 1.4Mbps. I know the differences in speed don’t sound much but they mean the difference between being able to stream TV programmes and not being able to. BT technical support cannot help me with this, stating we only promise 1.0 Mbps so will have to put up with it.
Does anyone know where I can get some info on this. What does “Under review” mean?
And how long will this review last?
