Target is that the network will be uncontended to the handover point - how the retailer repackages and manages the interconnect is up to them

An inaccurate and tabloid style story has been done by the BBC on this:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/south_yorkshire/8...

It would appear they've started getting feedback on it too given that this has just appeared on the story:

The technology is already available in other parts of Europe

Looks like the ball is rolling so to speak...

A brief look reveals several applications by KCOM to site street level cabs (with power) been made to Rotherham Council...

http://www.rotherham.gov.uk/NR/rdonlyres/615F30CA-44...

As KCOM is a sub-contractor in the DLR project I can only assume this is the reason for their applications in Rotherham.

Interestingly most of these cabs are in relatively close proximity to each other.

Just waiting to find out who the retailers are and the price of the packages.

Beating someone like TalkTalk LLU is a hard proposition, and while the 25Meg minimum may appeal, how much will it appeal to the average broadband user?

Maybe £5 or £10 a month extra at most I suspect. The number of us willing to pay £40 to £50 will be small.

Digitalregion still haven't sorted out their ISPs yet, their a new post on their website
(echoes of H20 fibrecity)

My guess would be the following ISPs
Eclipse Internet (part of KCORP who are part of the consortium building digitalregion)
Virginmedia (they already use Cable and Wireless' LLU for non-cable areas)
a smaller ISP such as Entanet etc
NOT plusnet (BT wouldn;t want to use someone else's network)

Whilst I'm posting, does anyone know digitalregion's VDSL is likely to include voice services?
How will they handle local number porting?
I'm looking to change my BT landline addons but wary of the require 12 month contract as I'm supposed to get digitalregion in August
Thanks

Is it just me.. or after all this time this thing has been in the planning etc, now they're underway with it, it's almost on the verge of being (I would say obsolete) but surpassed? I'm just concerned that because of this project we get little/no investment by other telcos in the region, and we end up stuck with an outdated incumbent infrastructure in the not too distant future.

On another note.. they a well underway, they've dug up half the streets around here to lay their fibre.. just trying to figure out where the cab is...
