Cabinets – Whitchurch 21 & Whitchurch 22
We are here:-
Openreach has informed us that cabinet 21 (the new cabinet in Ash Magna) is currently connected to the copper network working on the fibre spine and power connection. There are further engineering works to be done (the connection stage), followed by testing and assurance (activation stage) to be completed before hand over to the service providers. As things stand if everything goes according to plan, the engineering works will be complete towards the end of the summer with testing and handover expected in the autumn (Oct-Nov).
You may all be disappointed that fibre broadband will not now be available to you before the autumn months however Openreach has said if there is an opportunity to improve on these dates they will.
For the eagle eyed among you who have spotted you are now linked to cabinet no. 22 (near Somervilles) rather than 21, the position is similar to cabinet 21 but also requires a road closure and a private wayleave agreement. Hopefully the wayleave will be agreed quickly and activation of Whitchurch 22 will follow soon after Whitchurch 21.
