In reply to a post by MrSaffron:
Its clear looking at questions people have about email addresses, that unless their existing ISP is on a new infrastructure they don't sign up.


I'm afraid I can't make head or tail of that. Care to have another go?

Is there any independent evidence that there are any actual live customers? There is an alleged coverage map (for Bournemouth) elsewhere on t'Internerd but it hasn't been updated since June:
http://www.fibreforum.co.uk/?page=maps

Shame really, this lot are spoiling the game for any more serious but lower profile players who might actually be in with a chance of delivering, e.g. Rutland (Weekend?) Telecom.

To rephrase, people become attached to their current email addresses, and hate changing them.

Not seen a live user post on forums, and all I've heard is that people have live fibre that lets them see the portal and can sign up to retail providers from there. Some people surely have signed up.

Most of what I've seen on Bournemouth has been moans over the pavement trenching

I wonder if any readers have (work)? access to the usual suspects' business credit reference agency data, which might be able to shed a little more light on the state of the i3 empire. Phil/Yarwell reported a year or so ago that they had £millions (3?) in borrowings, and presumably they have contractors and suppliers to pay in Dundee and Bournemouth, but they have no significant visible means of support at the moment (and indeed no obvious means of short term cost recovery even if/when lots of people sign up).

OK lots of businesses make a loss in the first couple of years, but there has to be some light at the end of the tunnel/duct, or...

With FTTC rolling out and Bournemouth being a VM area how many customers did they expect?

500 so far according to one newspaper report.

If they had got everything up and running 12 months ago they stood a better chance, there is still a chance they will re-appear doing the work, but admittedly based on what happens in other cases that appear like this, it would appear slim
