Ultra fast FIBRE Broadband is 20m away from our house! It’s now in the “Shire!”

wrong

I’m just going to have to correct the title of these previous posts, where I have used the term Superfast Broadband, because Superfast Broadband refers to the technology of what we call Fibre To The Cabinet (FTTC) in the street, and then the remaining broadband is supplied by a copper telephone line to the property. From the cabinet to the Exchange  your maximum download speed is approx 76MBps, but depending on the length of copper from your house to the cabinet in the street, will reduce your download speed, because of noise/crosstalk on the copper line.

Ultra fast FIBRE Broadband referred to as Fibre To The Premises/Property (FTTP) or Fibre To The Home (FTTH) is where the property is connected to the Exchange directly on FIBRE! Therefore the maximum speed is 1GBps, currently maximum packages are 330MBps download, and 50MBps upload.

It’s ULTRA FAST FIBRE broadband which is coming to the shire! Which at this current time only 3% of the population have FTTP, so if this is true, and we are due to get FTTP installations in the SHIRE!, I’m very happy!

On the 15th May 2017, I spotted that they had pulled the fibre through to the base of my telegraph pole.

A few weeks ago, (19 June) I noticed two crayon markings next to two BT manhole covers, a week later (26 June) the pavement outside my house has been dug up, and a new telephone duct has been laid between two BT manhole covers.

Information obtained from Roadworks.org, which is a website you can view to look at all roadworks in the UK, they have been logged and authorised with your local councils! This listed the original notice here, and indicated that this work was scheduled for late August - September 2017. So I’ve been speculating as to when this website, will change to accepting orders!

The great thing about Roadworks.org, if you a roadworks stalker, you can setup alerts to notify you of changes in a defined area, and an alert popped into my Inbox this morning… stated this work to add new telegraph poles is to start!

So will I be able to place my order for ULTRA FAST FIBRE broadband in August 2017 ?
