Trudoxhill

Update published: Tuesday, 13th November 2018

Previously we stated that “the fibre that has been ordered from Virgin Media Business via BT OpenReach is now in the final stages of delivery and we have been told that it should be handed over to us in a working order by the end of this week”.  Sadly, this did not happen.

A discussion was had with our upstream provider, Virgin Media Business, who told us that their upstream provider, Talk Talk Business who in turn ordered the circuit from OpenReach, had experienced a problem at the Telephone Exchange where the fibre circuit terminates.  They have today sent us a rather cryptic update which is copied, verbatim, below.  Our translation is that we think the work should be complete by the 20th and the circuit handed to Virgin for them to send an engineer to fit the router.  If this is the timetable then we are on target now for a live service before the end of the month.

“Work wise, before the 20th we need to resolve;

Confirm fibre install and chassis install with planner
Confirm if broadband monitor line needed for chassis
Close planning and issue work estimates
Book in work and secure fibre

My main concern is the monitoring line as that can take a week to sort and this leaves no extra time. Generally this has to be in and tested first before the chassis fibre install can go ahead.  I have asked for confirmation the planning is done or will be today so we know where we stand.”

Gloucestershire

CLS – Little Somerford

Update published: Monday 5th November, 2018

The work to complete the agreement with the Diocese of Gloucester with regards to the use of the church in Little Somerford is nearly complete.  Currently it is in the hands of the Diocesan Register (aka their Solicitors) and we hope to get delivery of the completed legal instrument (called a “Faculty”) in the next few days.  Once this is done we can literally begin work to build the infrastructure on the church so that those installed already, and those who want to be installed, can be made live.

Once the work is completed on the church this leg of the network will be complete.

More to follow in the next few days.
